Transportation

Once you make the decision to come to the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience, you need to know how to get here. Fortunately, New Orleans transportation options are vast and can fit nearly any budget and time constraint. Learn how to get here first, and then find out tips on getting around this bustling city.

If you live out of state and feel New Orleans would take too long for you to drive to, you need to get acquainted with Louis Armstrong International Airport. The airport here is in nearby Kenner, just minutes from the business hub of New Orleans. It has been open since just after World War II, and as you might guess, it was named after jazz musician Louis Armstrong. Just some of the airlines that use this major New Orleans transportation center include Southwest, Delta, United, U.S. Airways, and American Airlines.

Once you land at the airport, you can either rent a car or take a cab to the New Orleans area you want to go to. If you plan to go straight to the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience, you can head to the heart of the city, where hundreds of participating wineries and restaurants are located. While you can certainly drive around the city, parking can be hard to find. For this reason, you are encouraged to use some public transportation mainstays that include pedicabs, streetcars, and buses.

If you are interested in streetcars, the three main lines in particular are St. Charles, the Riverfront, and Canal Street, all of which you can catch downtown to go to different districts. Of course, you can always simply walk or rent a bike to many popular destinations in this city.
