New Orleans family visit / free on street parking / stay in suburbs?

Jump to last reply

We are including New Orleans in a Deep South family vacation. We are not interested in nightlife, music, art, or special dining on this trip. Intend to explore historical NO during the day. We will have a car. Plan to stay in Metairie for free parking, nice pool, and feeling of security for rental car overnight. Trip is planned for April.

I am looking for feedback on this plan:

On the first day take a self-drive tour of flooded Katrina areas with a stop at city park and a walk along the lakefront.

Spend the second day in the central city walking the FQ and along the river. Tour a couple historical sites. Park for free on the street either in Algiers and ferry across or in the Garden District and take the streetcar.

Last morning tour a cemetery in Metairie on own.

We will consider an extra day if necessary. Also visiting Natchez, Vicksburg, and Pensacola on this trip.
