St. Charles Streetcar

St. Charles Ave.
New Orleans, LA, United States
TEL: (504) 248-3900

After being shut down by Hurricane Katrina, the world’s oldest continuously operating streetcar, the St. Charles, is once again winding over 13.2 miles, from the edge of the French Quarter, through the Garden District, and on to Riverbend—as it has for more than 150 years. With brass fittings, mahogany seats, and exposed ceiling light bulbs on the circa-1923 Perley Thomas carriages, the nostalgia is palpable and does much to earn its local moniker, the “Streetcar Named Inspire.”

Insider Tip:

Marlon Brando fans should hop on carriage #922, the car in A Streetcar Named Desire.
