Maison DuBois Bed and Breakfast (B&B) finds these
links for the New Orleans area very useful.
All aboard for a trip into New Orleans' past. The Saint
Charles Ave street railway is the oldest operating streetcar line in
the world, carrying passengers through the streets of New Orleans since
1835. The mahogany seats, brass fittings and exposed ceiling light bulbs
are from a day when plastic seats and aluminum rails were not even a
thought. Rumbling around the ''neutral ground'' of St. Charles and Carrollton
avenues for more than 150 years, the streetcar symbolizes the charm
and romance of the City of New Orleans. When you come to New Orleans
you will have the opportunity to ride the streetcar on Canal Street
and St. Charles Avenue routes. And as of October these newly renovated
streetcars are scheduled to go all the way to Napoleon Avenue after
a temporary hiatus due to Katrina. Hip hip hoorah!!!!!
Here at Maison DuBois Bed and Breakfast we often get
asked the question “What can I do to help rebuild/restore
STEP 1: Simply come visit New Orleans and support
the local businesses. Although while guests are in town they often want
to do more which is quickly becoming known as voluntourism.
Since Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, the metropolitan New Orleans
community has been the beneficiary of an incredible outpouring of support
from visitors to New Orleans. These are just a few organizations we
at Maison DuBois recommend.
