The Big Easy! One of the most unique, colorful, and vibrant cities in the United States, New Orleans is home to over 340,000 people, and is famous the world over for its food, music, festivals, the French Quarter, and of course the annual celebration of Mardi Gras. With all the restaurants, cathedrals, museums, art galleries, and performing arts in the city, it would take a long time to see them all… so why not rent a bus and see New Orleans in style?
New Orleans is the perfect destination for a party bus rental — and Metropolitan Shuttle is the perfect company to help you book it.

The National WWII Museum
Located in New Orleans’ Central Business District, the National WWII Museum has been designated by Congress as the official museum of its kind. The museum places emphasis on American involvement in WWII and features a wide variety of exhibits, including a Supermarine Spitfire and a Douglas C-47 Skytrain aircraft. There are also permanent galleries devoted to D-Day, the Road to Berlin, and more. This museum is a great destination for a school bus rental and a day in New Orleans.
Known as one of the greatest public spaces in America, Jackson Square is an historic park in the French Quarter. Modeled after the Place des Vosges in Paris, Jackson Square is as large as a city block, and is nearby to the Jax Brewery building, the Cafe du Monde, the French Market, and other historic and local points of interest. You’ve probably seen Jackson Square on TV or in film… it’s not only been a venue for hundreds of musical acts, but it’s been the setting for many television shows, movies, and even video games. What better destination for a New Orleans party bus rental?
If you’re a fan of music and New Orleans history, Frenchmen Street is the place for you. There are three blocks on Frenchmen Street which are home to some of New Orleans’ most well-known locations for live music. Frenchmen Street was fortunate enough to survive Hurricane Katrina, and its notoriety and popularity as an entertainment epicenter improved when visitors came to rebuild and enjoy local music. If you want a taste of the good stuff, gather some friends, book a minibus rental, and have a genuine New Orleans experience.
The French Quarter
The French Quarter is the oldest section of New Orleans. Founded in 1718, “the Quarter” is mostly made up of buildings from the late 18th and early 19th century. In fact, most of the buildings in the area date from before 1803 and the acquisition of New Orleans in the Louisiana Purchase. Today, the entire district is a National Historic Landmark, and features not only amazing architecture, but a wealth of restaurants. Some have been in business since the 19th century (Antoine’s, Tujague’s), while others are much newer (Emeril Lagrasse’s NOLA). A word to the wise: parking at restaurants like NOLA (and many other iconic French Quarter locations) can be a real challenge… so why not book a shuttle bus rental and make your night in New Orleans that much easier?
Preservation Hall, located in the French Quarter, is dedicated to preserving the experience of traditional New Orleans Jazz. The hall acts as a combination music venue, record label, and non-profit organization, holding nightly concerts in the city. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, part of the organization, tours yearly and has performed across the nation. Preservation Hall has been keeping the spirit of jazz alive in New Orleans for over fifty years.
