Every time we go to New Orleans, we have avoided the touristy carriage rides. My daughter begs to go on a carriage ride every time and we finally gave in during our last visit. The carriage ride takes you through the French Quarter while your carriage driver gives a little bit of history and points out architectural interests. We were all most interested in the history of the Great New Orleans Fire where the priests did not allow the church bells to be rung as fire alarms. The ride and the history lesson were both entertaining and just long enough.
