When you’re in New Orleans, there is always something to do! But with the Fourth of July falling on a Tuesday this year, you may be wondering how you should spend the weekend before the holiday. Whether you are a local or a visitor, there are several great options in Uptown for enjoying your Fourth of July weekend in New Orleans.
Take a Streetcar Ride through Uptown
There is nothing like a relaxing streetcar ride to remind you of the beauty and history of the Crescent City! Running for more than 150 years, the St. Charles streetcar line is the oldest continuously operating streetcar line in the world and has been designated a National Historic Landmark. See our live oaks and antebellum mansions as well as Tulane University, Loyola University, and Audubon Park as you ride through Uptown. For more information, go to the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority’s website.
Visit the Pontchartrain Hotel's Hot Tin Rooftop Bar
For an unbeatable 270-degree view of the Mississippi River and downtown New Orleans, the Pontchartrain Hotel’s Hot Tin rooftop bar is a must. It opens at 4pm Monday through Thursday and at 2pm Friday through Sunday, which makes it a perfect place to stop for pre-dinner cocktails or champagne.
Explore Magazine Street Uptown
The hugely popular Magazine Street is a frequent destination for both tourists and locals in Uptown. You can find your next meal or drink at the numerous restaurants and bars, but an even bigger attraction is the many and varied shops that populate Magazine Street. Don’t forget to stop by NOLA Couture’s Uptown location at 2928 Magazine Street to say hello! With these tips, we hope you will have a fun Fourth of July weekend in New Orleans.
NOLA Couture is thrilled to announce our third off-site adoption event with the LA-SPCA, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping animals in Louisiana.
