This is our first trip to NOLA and I have been reading a lot of your trip reports and on the forum, we will be visting the week between Christmas and New Years.
So here are my questions, we rented a house in Algiers, what I know right now about location is that it is 3 blocks from the ferry. I understand we can ferry and take street cars to the French Quarter as well as the Garden District, but would you recommend if we have dinner and drinks in the French Quarter into the evening (not later than 10) would you use this same transportation in the eveining? We will have a car, so maybe it is better to drive?
Are there restuarants in that area if we were wanting to not venture far one morning or evening?
