    Is this good start in reserving parking. Looks like a bunch of hotels with parking near the airport?? Do you think they provide free shuttle to the stadium?

    I am guessing yes, but I would call them......worse comes to worse you cab it, or shuttle to a hotel in the Quarter.

    I frequently stay at airport hotels: Hilton, Crowne Plaza, or Radisson. IIRC, only the Radisson provided (or arranged for) a shuttle van to the downtown. I believe that the Hilton is the only one of those hotels which provides for non-Guest parking (for a fee). The Hilton is across Airline Highway from the airport terminal's parking garages, which include both daily and short term premium parking, ranging from about $12 to $24 IIRC.

    There are also privately run parking lots along Airline Highway.

    You should also check out the New Orleans Airport Shuttle , which would take you to Poydras and/or Canal Street hotels for $18 r/t last summer. You can reserve and pre-pay, if they have seats available.

    If the airport area does not work out for you, read posts above about taking the Canal Street streetcar from the Museum of Art to lower Canal. $1.25 cash only, or $.40 for seniors. There should also be street parking along Canal, but the area gets seedy past the cemeteries towards 1-10, then you hit downtown congestion. It runs every 1/2 hour on the hour & 1/2 hour. That will be our approach. You could alternatively drive down Carrollton & St. Charles Streets, following the green line streetcar in the median past the Audubon Zoo, Tulane U, and through the Garden District . Best bet would be to get off the streetcar at Poydras, walk north to the Superdome.

    Oh yeah, security was real slow Tuesday, and that was a small crowd......they have to wand everyone and it didn't look like they were well trained so allow a lot of extra time to get into the Dome. It could be a big back-up.

    NOLARavenFAN: Do you know what time the stadium opens? Knuckleheads I spoke to with Saints and NFL "customer-I-don't-Care" didn't know, but guessed 3:30.

    Wondering if I should go early, day of the game, etc.

    I do not have the ticket with me but I think it said 1:30. I thought that was a lot of time. Somebody who has one handy can check it out.

    Anyone know what kind of items stadium security allows. I'm planning to bring in a camera, a small one of course. My camera phone sucks.

    Who is in for a board meet up? Shouldn't be too hard to get something together for a drink or two.

    Drive down was tough.. lotsa rain and GUSTING winds, but here we are! let us know what the get-together plans are and we'll be there! Or- if tickets come close to face value- perhaps we can slip in the Dome..

    The hard thing will be to predetermine a Bourbon Street bar - as a meeting spot - that won't be crowded. Many times, I have been on Bourbon Street during major events (e.g. Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, Sugar Bowl) and found it impossible to get in almost any bar. If the getting together crowd is too large, you have to use side and parallel streets because walking gets too difficult. I'll go along with anything you pick in the French Quarter on Saturday 2:30 to about 7 pm, but my needs are simple: a few beers in Jackson Square would work fine. If Bourbon Street is not mobbed, it's only a five minute walk from there.
