Fly from Tampa to New Orleans

New Orleans is known as "the Big Easy" for its party atmosphere. When you fly from Tampa to New Orleans, consider taking a taxi to avoid paying for parking at Tampa International Airport (TPA). The smooth flight is around one hour.


The French Quarter is the old city that still retains the architecture of centuries ago. Hotels and apartments with balconies that overlook the streets abound. Be prepared for all-night partying in this festive neighborhood. Also visit Congo Square-Louis Armstrong Park at 701 North Rampart Street, adjacent to the French Quarter. This site is where the slaves met on Sundays to play music and sell goods. Today, the park honors Armstrong, the most famous jazz musician from the city and the man who created the genre.
