The French Quarter market is really fun. The vendors are friendly, prices reasonable, and the center open air restaurant has great food and fabulous live music.

Quirky and friendly, the French Quarter is much cleaner and less raunchy than when I was here 20 years ago. Bourbon Street is under construction, but everything is open.

The French Quarter is colorful yet dark and seductive. There is always music, alcohol and activities every step. It is my favorite spot in the world.

Make sure you visit the French quarter during the day! It is not the best of areas when it comes to beggars. But the shopping, food and scenery was excellent. Great place to grab discounted souvenirs, a sandwich on Decatur street and explore Jackson square!
