walking at night - superdome to French Quarter?

Going to the National Championship game, and our hotel's (Maison Du Puy) is only a mile from the superdome. I prefer to walk, but would it be safe? Would it be realistic to try to hail a cab after a game like that?

Thanks!

don't walk unless you see a whole crowd going the same way - it's just night that safe at night - you might have to call a cab company so maybe get some phone numbers in your cell phone before you go!

I'd call a cab but if you have to walk stay on the main streets and you should be fine. As in any big city at night don't go down dark streets without others around. Have a great time and go Bucks!

The good news about walking is that thousands of other fans will also be doing it. As has been stated before, just walk with another "group" and you'll be absolutely fine.

Hailing a cab after the game will be difficult. Again, walk with the group if possible.

Cabs ARE easier if you leave the game early. If one time has a big lead and folks start trickling out (as often happens at Saints games!) you can find a cab line on Poydras outside the Dome.

We were there this weekend and walked from the Central Business District area to the French Quarter several times, day and night. We never felt at all threatened. I'm sure with lots of sports fans around, you'll be fine!
