On the Waterfront

The Mississippi river isn’t just a scenic backdrop for the French Quarter and the rest of the city. In fact, the Port of New Orleans is the fifth largest in the United States. More than 5,000 ships from over fifty nations dock there every year, and the port is served by 6 class-one railroads, 16 barge lines, and 75 trucking companies.
