I agree on the St. Charles street car, it's a great way to see the uptown half of New Orleans. It's under construction but I don't know where, I live downtown and don't get that way too often. Restaurants: I started writing a list of great places but realized it was getting really long. What kind of food do you like, and what kind of dining experience do you like. And if you are a certain kind of person be prepared to never want to leave.
