IMPORTANT: GPS USERS
If driving and using a GPS, check the box next to “avoid ferries”, or you may be instructed to go down Canal Street to the ferry. The ferry is passenger only. Print out and follow our driving instructions below and come over the Mississippi River Bridge. The GPS will redirect you once you cross it when you put in our address – 335 Pelican Avenue.
If taking a cab from the airport, make sure you print out the “Driving Directions” below as we have a lot of new cab drivers in town that don’t know the city as well as they should. The cab should cost around $50 and take about 30 minutes.
Driving Directions from I-10/Airport (from the East or West):
Take I-10 towards New Orleans (you will see signs for Business District and Westbank- follow them). Follow over Mississippi River Bridge to the Westbank (Hwy.90). Take the Gen. DeGaulle East exit. At the first red light turn left onto Shirley Drive. Follow to end of street and at red light (Federal City) turn left onto Gen. Meyer. At next red light turn right onto Behrman. Turn left at end onto Opelousas Ave. Continue to a small park on your right (about a mile) and turn right onto Seguin St. Go to stop sign and turn right onto Pelican Ave. We are on the right hand side of that block at no. 335 (pink house, white picket fence) one house from the corner of Bermuda St.
Driving Directions from Houma:
From Hwy. 90 take Business 90 East exit to the Westbank. Follow to the elevated expressway. Take exit 9 (Terry Parkway/Gen. DeGaulle exit). Stay on the road below the Expressway. Turn right at the second red light onto Gen. DeGaulle Dr. Turn left almost immediately at first red light onto Shirley Dr. Follow above directions from Shirley Dr.
