Riverfront Streetcar

The Riverfront Streetcar runs for about two miles very close to, but out of sight of, the Mississippi, and began service in 1988.  Unlike the much older St. Charles Streetcar, or the newer Canal Streetcar, this line passes through no residential districts.  It does serve a great number of tourist and visitor sights, including the cruise ship terminal, the huge convention center, the hotel and casino district, Riverwalk, downtown shopping, the French Quarter, Jackson Square and French and Farmers Markets -- and this is just a partial list.  There are a total of ten stations along the way.  This view shows the Dumaine St. stop, and part of the city's skyline beyond.
