We all know that New Orleans is a city rich in history, art, cuisine, architecture, and just plain weirdness. The good thing is, you don’t have to be a rich person to enjoy many of the fine things the Big Easy has to offer. In fact, if all you have is a Hamilton in your wallet, don’t sweat: there are plenty of fun and exciting activities awaiting you (surprise, many of them involve food and drink). Here are 40 of them.
1. Take a streetcar ride
Price: $1.25 (plus whatever coffee you get)
Go all the way from Canal St to Oak St for coffee at Rue de la Course. It’s worth it for the building alone.
2. Grab a sixer and head to The Fly
You can watch the riverboats on the Mississippi, plus there’s even a soccer field & a baseball diamond, if you bring a ball.
It’s closing in 2016, so get there fast.
The silver screen for a little green.
