“Oldest continuously operating streetcar in the world”

All aboard for a trip into New Orleans' past on the oldest continuously operating streetcar in the world! The mahogany seats, brass fittings and exposed ceiling light bulbs are from a day when plastic seats and aluminum rails were not even a thought. Rumbling around the ''neutral ground'' of St. Charles Avenue and Carrollton Avenue for more than 150 years, the streetcar symbolizes the charm and romance of the City of New Orleans. The route traditionally forms a 13.2-mile crescent from Carondelet at Canal Street in the Central Business District through the oldest and most majestic section of uptown New Orleans, around the Riverbend to Carrollton at Claiborne Avenue. Swaying along St. Charles Avenue through a tunnel Live Oaks, the streetcar passes dozens of antebellum mansions, historic monuments, Loyola and Tulane universities, the sweeping grounds of the Audubon Zoological Gardens, shopping centers, fine restaurants and hotels.

If you've never been to New Orleans and want to experience the streetcar just for fun (rather than transportation) the st Charles streetcar is probably the most beautiful of the lines. Goes from Claiborne/Carrollton to Carondelet/Canal. Straight to the French quarter! From the canal stop you can go almost anywhere downtown.

3 bucks for 24 hours and it will get you pretty much anywhere you would want to go in the NOLA area; excellent!
