New Orleans Car Rentals
Finding great rental cars in New Orleans is simple!
Families vacationing in New Orleans may feel some trepidation at first: Is the U.S. Mardi Gras capital really a suitable place for little ones? Absolutely! There's more to this thriving city than Bourbon Street, and your New Orleans car rental can help you discover it. From playtime to learning time, the young and the young at heart will be surprised to discover that this city of more than 340,000 people offers world-class fun and adventure.
Crazy for creatures
Step into the worlds of mammals, fish, insects and more at the Audubon Nature Institute, a family of museums located throughout the city. One of the best arms of the institute is Audubon Park. The city's first mayor founded one of the nation's first sugar plantations on the land, and throughout the years it has served a number of purposes. It has been the site of a Confederate camp, a Union hospital, the 1984 World's Fair and finally, Audubon Park. Whether your kids are into bugs, tigers or canaries, they are sure to get a thrill out of their wildlife encounters offered by the Audubon Nature Institute. In the Audubon Zoo, you'll also find the Cool Zoo - a water park built just for kids who need to cool off. Because these three creature sanctuaries are located throughout the city, make sure to use your New Orleans rental car to get around.
Learning through play
Kid's will love the Louisiana Children's Museum. Interactive experiences and hands-on learning make education fun for little intellectuals. Creative kids can go wild with watercolors, glue and other craft supplies at the Art Trek art studio. Those with an eye for design can draw out walls and columns at the New Orleans: Proud to Call it Home Architecture Exhibit. Here, kids can use real drafting boards to map out their next big building! Drive your New Orleans rental car to this unique and deeply interactive kid-friendly museum.
Get some fresh air
Your New Orleans car rental will come in handy for visiting the City Park of New Orleans. Offering 1,300 acres of family-friendly fun, the city park features an amusement park, storyland, train garden, playgrounds, fishing, sports areas, walking paths and more. At the Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, kids will love riding the last antique carousel in Louisiana. Other rides include the Musik Express, Rockin' Tug, Coney Tower, bumper cars, a Ferris wheel and a 40-foot fun slide.
In the heart of southeastern Louisiana, straddling the mighty Mississippi River, the city of New Orleans has stood for centuries. Surrounded by ancient waters and majestic trees, brooding bayous and colorful gardens, the city’s legendary entertainment meccas, lush parks and charming cafes stand as a testament to its past, present and future.
Although most of the city’s top attractions are located in or around the infamous French Quarter, with a New Orleans car rental, you can discover many of the hidden treasures nestled within the nooks and crannies of its nearby neighborhoods, including:
- Preservation Hall
- Honey Island Swamp
- Audubon Nature Institute
