There is a bus line right down the street.
The bus takes you on a short ride into the heart of the Marigny. Only a few more stops till the French quarter and the street car line.
Book before you go
Ghost tours, city tours, graveyard, riverboat and swam tours
There are many, many tours in town. I have not heard of a bad one yet but you will need to make your reservations in advance. just google New Orleans Tours as they are always changing.
Getting around

If you drive to the French quarter, you can park on the outskirts; Esplanade Ave or Rampart Street and walk right in.
