There is a great New Orleans site ( which has a ton of information about NoLa in terms of getting around, restaurants and FREE things to do while in the city.

I really enjoyed reading this list: 50 Free Things to do in New Orleans because I’ll have such a wealth of time on my hands while I’m in the city, so a little planning will go a long way.

For example, did you know there is a free ferry ride you can take to Algiers Point so you can get great photos of the NoLa skyline? The Canal Street Ferry is free for pedestrians, and it’s certainly now on my list of things to do when I’m there.

Another very important item on my list is the New Orleans Museum of Art  – and it’s free on Wednesdays! And what’s more wonderful is the museum is located in City Park, which also houses the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden and you guessed it – it’s also free.

Now, I’m sure I’ll be doing things in New Orleans that aren’t free too, but everything from taking in art galleries, to exploring the local parks, historical sites and neighborhoods are and it could take an interested traveler more than a few weeks to explore all these wonderful possibilities!

PLEASE share your favorite things to do in New Orleans below – especially things that are unusual and a bit more off the beaten path!
