Bike tours are a thing in New Orleans, and with good reason. There's not a hill in sight, the city has ramped up its bike lanes and there are gorgeous avenues shaded by live oaks all over town. Fat Tire Bike and Segway Tours is a super option for getting a visitor out and about. Knowledgeable tour guides (shout out to Charlie, what a funny, smart guy!) set the stage for an in depth exploration of New Orleans, especially outside of the French Quarter, as well as in the Garden District. After a brief orientation by the Mississippi, guides lead guests through neighborhoods including the Marigny and Treme and into City Park, with plenty of stops for water and breaks along the way. The tour is about 3 1/2 hours and the pace is relaxed. This is an international company with locations in cities from D.C. to London and Paris, so the website is high caliber and there's great customer support. The company's fleet of three speed cruiser bikes is in great shape. Book online and if you've never tried a segway tour - give it a shot, it's fun!
- Things to Do in Fall: "Take the tour early in your stay to learn your way around the city and get ideas for the rest of your time in Nola."
- Best for Things to Do in Fall Because: This company does a great job introducing New Orleans to visitors.
