Making your way to Louis Armstrong Airport
Located 11 miles from downtown New Orleans, this medium-sized airport consists of one terminal building. A long ticketing hall joins four concourses, which are designated A, B, C, and D. There is free WiFi throughout the airport, and you’ll find a pet relief area located beside the short-term parking garage.
Drivers will find plenty of parking options at MSY, though the cheapest option, the credit card lot, will still set you back $10/day. You can take public transport to the airport. The Airport-Downtown Express (E-2) Bus costs $2, and travels between downtown New Orleans and the airport terminal Door 7. The journey takes about 50 minutes, and service may be limited at certain times. Be sure to check the schedule in advance.
Arriving in Houston
Texas promises big things, and Houston is no exception. This is a big city, covering almost 600 square miles. To avoid spending your entire trip driving from place, it pays to come with a plan. Houston is a fantastic place for shopping, especially the hip boutiques in the Westheimer and Dunlavy districts.
Generations of investment in the arts have created world-class institutions, such as the Houston symphony, ballet, and opera, along with many great galleries and museums. The Museum of Fine Arts hosts big-budget exhibits of visiting works from around the world, and the theater scene is booming: in fact, it’s considered to run a close second to New York City. Grab a show at the Alley Theatre for some world-class entertainment.
If the simplicity of nature is more your style, Houston’s Audubon Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary is 17.5 acres of peaceful wooded bliss, right in the middle of the city. And of course, you can’t mention Houston without mentioning NASA. The Space-Center is an amazing attraction for anyone who has ever gazed with wonder at the night sky.
