Description

Explore New Orleans in a fun and eco-friendly way on a small-group bike tour that winds through the Big Easy’s oldest and most distinctive neighborhoods. Cycle along a flat and leisurely route from the famous French Quarter to less-visited neighborhoods like Esplanade Ridge, City Park, and Bayou St. John, learning about the city’s rich history and modern culture along the way. After getting fitted on a bike in the French Quarter, ride through this storied neighborhood. Then go beyond the touristy boundaries to explore more of the city, following leafy Esplanade Avenue to the green expanse of City Park, visiting St. Louis Cemetery No. 3, and other interesting locations along the way. After visiting St. Louis Cemetery No. 3, cruise past swampy vistas in City Park. You'll traverse through Bayou St. John, a historic waterway that was used by Native Americans and French settlers alike, and learn why it was so instrumental in the city's founding. This bike tour includes visits to the French Quarter, Faubourg Marigny, Esplanade Avenue, St. Louis Cemetery No. 3, City Park, Bayou St. John, Mid-City, the Lafitte Greenway, Louis Armstrong Park, and Congo Square.
