Mid-City is a local gem, the kind of place where neighbors know each other by name and visitors are more than welcome to experience the beauty and amenities of this charming area. Po-boys, breweries, and bakeries are commonplace here, so you’ll never go hungry! And this area is also known for its fascinating above-ground cemeteries which are just as interesting to explore as more lively parts of the neighborhood. The vibes of Mid-City are unmistakably quirky and welcoming, with quaint bungalows and one-of-a-kind restaurants and bars that truly capture the essence of the Crescent City.
Famous Streets of Mid-City
Canal Street: One of Mid-City’s most notable landmarks, Canal Street bisects the neighborhood right down the middle. Canal Street is mainly known for the Canal Streetcar line, a famous old-fashioned streetcar that you can ride from the above-ground cemeteries all the way to the Mississippi River. Besides the streetcar line, Canal Street is a hub for parades (especially during Mardi Gras), shopping, restored theaters, and great restaurants.
Carrollton Avenue: Carrollton Avenue is one of the most beautiful streets in the city, wide open and blanketed by shady trees. This major thoroughfare stretches from Uptown to Mid-City and is home to many restaurants and historic homes. It’s got a fast-paced, friendly vibe that caters to tourists and locals. The St. Charles Streetcar line runs down part of the street.
