    To be honest, we found this place totally by accident. We had just come from visiting Louis Armstrong Park and were looking for a public bathroom. Usually, gas stations are a reliable desperation bathroom pit stop, but not in New Orleans. Public restrooms are not that available in New Orleans. We first stopped at a gas station along Rampart Street, but they had none. Further down the road, we saw a fairly large Chevron station. There should have been public bathrooms, given its size, but there were none! But there was a very helpful person working there that pointed to Basin St. Station tourist info center across Basin Street from them. So grateful to her! It was close by and easy to get to.
    I could see right away that they had tours available. My wife and I do not usually do tours, but if we did, this place's tours actually looked interesting. Time didn't really allow for them though. We were more or less passing through New Orleans, not staying overnight.
    So, we used the public restrooms, which were immaculately clean. In addition, there was a small food service place there. There were history info boards too. But it was the gift shop that really stood out. Nice selection, all New Orleans related. Reasonable prices. No big crowds. In fact, very few people at the time. We picked up a few iconic souvenirs to remember New Orleans by.
    So, if you are in New Orleans and want a tour, this looks like a great place for that. If you want some souvenirs, this is a great place. And if you desperately need a bathroom, this is the place!

    It’s a massive w convention centre that is about 10 to 15 minute walk from the downtown area. Beside the Riverwalk shopping area.

    This is worth stopping into for some brochures or maps, especially for first timers. Ask where the best food, music, shopping, and things to do are located. They will have good suggestions.

    The Cita Dennis Hubbell Library which opened in 1907 is a tiny historic gem in Algiers Point. My son and I have spent the past two years enjoying this quaint library. We often visit to check out books, complete homework, and participate in some of the amazing programs that are offered like Reading to Thor. We even participated in a specialized healthy cooking class during American Heart Month last year. We absolutely miss our weekly visits since the beginning of this Covid19 Pandemic. However, I am happy that appointments can be made for 45 minutes visits to browse materials and contactless visits are available to pick up books.
    Special thanks to the Librarian Chris for helping me resolve some minor problems with my library card and assisting me with selecting a few books about Thanksgiving. My son and I miss the library but we are truly happy to have a way to obtain needed materials during the pandemic. Keep up the great work during these challenging times.

    Stopped in the Welcome Center first night of vacation. Gabby was very helpful and friendly. Made great suggestions for tours and restaurants. Went back on Christmas Eve and had friendly service from the two gentlemen working that day. Booking a tour was easy, and the Port of Passage tour was enlightening. Will use them again next time.

    Doing research on the 3rd floor. Some employes wore nametags and some didn’t. Some employees were very helpful and some did not seem to want to be bothered with questions. Bathrooms needed attentionand did not have toilet paper in any of the stalls and we got there at 10:30 am. Eventually found what I was looking for.

    The Louisiana Welcome Center is located in an historic building in the heart of the French quarter on Jackson Square. After 2 other stops in places that were calling themselves visitors centers, we found a real one here. Though small in size, we found maps, information and brochures on everything for New Orleans and the surrounding areas and a very helpful staff. French spoken and free coffee.
