Since I had already toured the French Quarter and the riverfront, I wanted to explore the Garden District. Then, I planned to eat gumbo at Daisy Duke’s. Finally, I would tour the New Orleans City Park and Botanical Gardens. I thought that I would have plenty of time.
Not far from the cruise port, I found a trolley terminal for the Riverfront line. I waited. And waited. After about 20 minutes, I gave up. I chose to walk and try to find a pickup spot for the St. Charles line. All along Canal Street were numerous terminals for the Canal Street lines.
It took about a 20 minute walk to get to where I thought the St. Charles terminal would be. There was no station. I wandered around searching, but with no luck. Finally, I discovered that there was no terminal at this far end of the line. Everyone just crowded onto the corner of Canal and St. Charles Street.
Again, I waited. And waited. After about 40 minutes, two trolleys arrived back to back. Such a crowd had gathered, that we completely filled both.
