Good times roll in New Orleans

New Orleans is a city where you’re meant to have fun, so roll up your sleeves and dive in. While you can start with Bourbon Street, Canal Street, and the French Quarter, the endless fun, parades, great food, and incredible music are available in every neighborhood.

From second line parades and food halls to museums and cemeteries, there are worlds within worlds to explore in NOLA. Set some time aside during your business trip or vacation to spin around all parts of town and catch it all.

New Orleans favorites

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more unique and lively city than New Orleans, and each neighborhood hides something special to offer.

purple lines

Backstreet Cultural Museum

Located in Treme in an old funeral home, this is the place to learn about jazz funerals and the history of the Mardi Gras Indians, plus get an up-close look at their intricate, hand-sewn costumes.

Marigny

This hip neighborhood is home to Frenchmen Street, where you can always find a good live show, and it’s also worth a mention that big-name singer Solange Knowles owns a house here too.

City Park

Covering over 1,300 acres, you’re bound to find something happening in City Park — from New Orleans Jazz Fest to a carousel ride, or just a stroll through the Besthoff Sculpture Garden.

Hit the road

There’s more to explore just outside New Orleans, so book your car on Turo and leave the city center behind to continue your eating tour of Louisiana and get a healthy dose of history. Mardis Gras is quite a scene, but the bayou has more to offer than the usual tourist attractions.

Browse rental options near your preferred airport location

Lafayette

This is the heart of Cajun Country, so drive about three hours west and to find the best boudin, cracklin, smoked meat, and gumbo you can handle.

Avery Island

For fans of hot sauce, a visit to this island where Tabasco is produced will not disappoint. Take a tour, learn a few new tricks in a cooking class, and explore the Jungle Garden.

Whitney Plantation

Just an hour west from New Orleans, the only plantation in Louisiana that focuses on and offers memorials to the lives and experiences of enslaved people is well worth a day trip.

If I can give more stars to Lou, I would in a heartbeat. The car was very clean and Lou's service was beyond expectations. He was very communicative following up on questions. I had left an item in the car which he brought to my attention and made a concerted effort to get it back to me while in New Orleans. Super nice guy and would highly recommend him. He went beyond expectations as a Turo host.

The car was in great working condition and was priced well for what we needed. Since it is new it had a lot of great features that made driving comfortable and easy. Filling it up with gas wasn’t expensive considering gas prices today. Only downside is it was a bit dirty on the inside but didn’t bother me terribly.

While visiting New Orleans in July 2021, my wife and I decided to take a few day trips out of the city. The local car rental agencies had limited availability (apparently due to COVID) and many of them had very poor ratings, so we decided to try using Turo. We selected Daniel because he has a a lengthy, and top rated renter history. He was very accommodating, and communicated promptly within the app. He was even able to accommodate a schedule change to our original drop off time. We selected his 2021 Chevy equinox, which was clean, comfortable, roomy, and reliable. I would definitely recommend renting from Daniel, and will rent from him again next time I visit New Orleans.

This was my first Turo experience and I am thrilled. Thankfully, I had Rick as my host who took such exceptional care and helped me through the entire process. When the car of my original reservation had to unexpectedly be in the shop he reached out and offered to swap one of his superior rentals for a reduced rate. I had no idea how to handle this in the app and he stayed up late helping me with customer service etc. I could go on and on. He was always a text away and I felt so very cared for. Rick is the real deal.

First time using Turo, Kennor made me and my girl feel like this is the best way to go. Due to a family issue, I had to change my pick up time 3 times , Kennor was understanding and Almost missed his barber shop appointment to make sure I received the jeep. The Wrangler was in perfect condition and clean and made the road trip even better. I’ll definitely recommend kennor cars to family and friends.

First time Turo user, and things couldn’t have gone better. The Jeep was fantastic, and spotless. Rick was quick to respond, and the pick-up and drop off was easy. Jeep is the perfect vehicle in New Orleans, as it is easy to get around the city with, but good on a backroad as well.
