View Full Version : NOLA peeps, advice please

So, hubby and I are planning to travel now that we are retired. He suggested that our first 'big' trip should be to NOLA for my 65th birthday in late Oct.

I will search online to find a B&B, we'll fly in. Am I thinking right that we should forego the rental car? We neither of us like driving in strange cities, and thought we could get by with cabs and street cars. Other than the French Quarter and attendant bars/clubs/restaurants, the Aquarium, and the Garden District....what should we see? Have you taken the paddle boat cruise up to the Chalmette Battlefield? Is it worth half a day? We like museums, zoos, architecture/gardens, and other historical stuff. I do plan on going to Preservation Hall.
