Mr. Carriere And Knucklehead

New Orleans is filled with plenty of colorful characters. This article “Mr. Carriere And Knucklehead” is just an example of one of them. There are additional links at the end of this article that will lead you to other sites that offer information about New Orleans attractions.

 

When you come to the New Orleans French Quarter you can’t help but notice the colorful mule drawn carriages throughout the Quarter streets. A relaxing buggy ride is often just the thing for foot weary sight seers, history buffs or romantic couples who want to snuggle a little closer than walking will allow.

These rides also include a narrated tour of the historic French Quarter and the renowned “Cities of the Dead”. No matter how much I think I know about New Orleans there is always more I don’t know. I love visiting with a particular buggy driver and his sidekick, Knucklehead. A virtual walking history book this guy knows his stuff. With thirty-five years of being a NOLA tour guide under his belt Mr. Carriere is as much a Big Easy attraction as the landmarks people flock to the Crescent City to see.

Twelve bucks for a thirty minute ride with someone who knows the streets and the stories as well as Mr. Carriere and Knucklehead is a hell of a deal. If you have never done the buggy ride thing or even if you have, treat yourself to a half hour with a favorite French Quarter fixture. Let Mr. Carriere take you on a scenic ride and regale you with NOLA tales of the past and present. Look for the lavender colored buggy parked in front of Jackson Square, feed Knucklehead a carrot and take in the sights and sounds of the historic Vieux Carre’ with a master storyteller.

The cadence of Knucklehead’s hoofs and timbre of Mr. Carriere’s voice are perfect compliments to the cacophony of sounds that resonant through the French Quarter. With plenty of tours to choose from this one covers all the bases. Informative but interesting, entertaining and amusing this is definitely one for your New Orleans “To Do” list. Enjoy the ride!

Best way to to visit the French Quarter and Bourbon Street?

Me and my friends are going to plan a weekend road trip to New Orleans.None of us have ever been to New Orleans. We like to drink and have a good time. We also want to visit Bourbon St. What is the best way to do this? Hotel suggestions? Any transportation to Bourbon St? Taxi prices? Must do or see things?. We are trying to do this as cheep as possible, but any help is appreciated.

I can’t add much to who dat’s answer except I like the Hotel St. Marie. It’s inexpensive (about $60 a night), clean, and it has a pool. It’s like so close to Bourbon St. it’s crazy. I don’t know if they have parking, I never drive there. Their sister hotel is the St. Pierre up the street. Also inexpensive but no pool.
Have fun!!!
