New Orleans on the Mississippi

I’ve seen the Mississippi River before in Memphis, TN when I was on tour. It was nice to return to the river in New Orleans, just to the southeast of Jackson Park. You get a nice view of two bridges: the Pontchartrain Expy and the Crescent City Connection (both are numbered the 90). If you are looking for a cheap thrill you can ride the Algiers ferry for free and cross the river. Obviously a group of us did this one afternoon. However, you should be careful walking the boardwalk, especially at night.
