Get to the heart of New Orleans through Canal Street.
There’s no better place to start your tour of New Orleans than Canal Street. It’s the city’s original pedestrian and auto thoroughfare, bursting with historic theatres, trendy eateries, swanky hotels, a massive shopping centre, an aquarium, and even a world-class insectarium—yep, that’s right, a museum for bugs! Canal Street is also an awesome spot to watch a parade during Mardi Gras. You can walk along Canal Street, or hop on a streetcar to see the whole thing if you’re saving your energy for the nearby French Quarter.
