So downtown then? It's close to things?

Iirc (which I might not) everything we did was walkable or a really quick cab ride. If you're only there for a day you can stay busy locally
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

Ah, ok. So maybe I'll look into the downtown area. I'm so used to downtown NYC or LA which are pretty dead at night and not the touristy place to stay.

Also did you go to Metairie often?

I would imagine the FQ is more "happening". although we were across the street from the casino
Everything i did is in my mini TR.

I read it, don't worry, I wasn't asking what you did, rather if where you stayed was good. Going to Metairie seemed a bit of a hassle though.

Not too much.  St.  Charles streetcar, Royal St. in the FQ, a swamp tour, cemetery your, or something else. We'd only have one day and it'd be with a baby so I can't imagine all that much more than two or three things.

we looked into a swamp tour but decided against it for 2 reasons. 1) the weather wasn't appropriate for it. 2) it would have taken too much time.
I highly recommend the WW2 museum.

So it could be the museum, FQ just because and the streetcar. Should take the day.

Do you think a car is necessary?
