Neighborhood: French Quarter

The five-minute free ride on the Canal-Algiers Ferry is a great alternative way to see the French Quarter and experience NOLA outside the tourist zone. The Canal Street terminal is conveniently located on the edge of the French Quarter. The Algiers Point terminal is in a quaint neighborhood. Algiers Point, founded in 1719 with about the same size of the French Quarter, has quite a different atmosphere. Here you can enjoy a scenic walk along the river bank, chat with dog-walkers, see different types of architectures from Creole Cottages to Greek Revival, visit the Mardi Gras World, or just hang out at the local bar outside the terminal. The ferry runs every 30 minutes, leaving Algiers Point on the half-hour and hour and leaving Canal Street at 15 minutes to the hour and 15 after the hour. - Hoiyin Ip
