Ben suggests that visitors who want to explore the neighborhood he calls home begin by hopping on a bike. “One of my favorite things to do in New Orleans is ride through the French Quarter. You can take in all the sights, and sounds too, of course, in a way you don’t experience the city when you are inside a car. Chartres is one of my favorite streets. As you pedal through the French Quarter, the music from the bars spills into the streets as does the smell of New Orleans cuisine. You can follow it the whole way through Marigny and Bywater.”
Here, there are several bike rental shops ready to set you on your way—laissez les bon temps roulez will take on a whole new meaning as you pedal your way through the neighborhood.
