A Quarter Rat throwback tourist map to the Vieux Carre, and some other parts of New Orleans

Mardi Gras parades are canceled in New Orleans to reduce spread of COVID-19 and despite heavy discouragement against traveling to the city for the holiday, tourists are still here.

Bars several other French Quarter establishments have closed following Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s Feb. 5 announcement of additional, temporary restrictions during Mardi Gras, including the police-barricaded closure of Bourbon Street.

With all of the confusion surrounding restrictions, closures, what’s open and what’s not, The Quarter Rat discovered a relic: an old map created years ago by the previous Quarter Rat Magazine overlords to help guide tourists around the Vieux Carre, and the surrounding area, without much confusion.

We offer no guarantees this map will help you find what you’re looking for, but hopefully it will lead you in the right direction.
