How to get to the city starting at New Orleans Airport

Ideally located on the outskirts of the city centre, you can reach the city centre in just a few minutes by car. If, on the other hand, you are looking for relaxation after your arrival and don't want to leave immediately with the rental car, you can of course reach the city centre by taxi (in the baggage claim area of the belts 1 and 14) or by the airport shuttle bus, whereby the fares for a taxi and bus ride are currently between $24 and about $40 per person depending on the destination, which is why renting a rental car can already be expected.

Rent a Car New Orleans Airport - the City of Jazz

In hardly any other city in the world have so many jazz musicians discovered the light of the world as in New Orleans, which is why the city bears the nickname, the "cradle of jazz". Walk in the footsteps of Louis Armstrong, enjoy the tasty Creole cuisine and let the Spanish and French colonial buildings take you to another world.

The main attractions include a visit to Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral and a stroll down Bourbon Street with its many bars, which is arguably one of New Orleans' best known streets. Those who are interested in music should definitely visit the Preservation Hall and on the French Market you will find a lot of street musicians as well as endless delicacies.

Rental Car at New Orleans Airport: trip to Lake Pontchartrain

Without having made a few detours into the interior of the country, or at least to have rode around the Pontchartrain Lake, the second largest salt lake in the United States, you should never fly home again. If you want to get to grips with Louisiana's recent history, you should definitely make a detour to the Whitney Plantation Historic District with your rental car, which impressively deals with slavery in the American South. But also a visit to the LSU Rural Life Museum at Baton Rouge is an absolute must on a trip through Louisiana.
