We spend couple of days in New Orleans and when you go to the Mississippi river you usually need to pass the Jackson Sq. The square seems renovated with the view on the cathedral. Posdibly the best place to take a photo with the cathedral...More
Great place to people watch. The open area between the park and church is most often set up with tarot cards readers and street performers. Best pic of cathedral is from the waterfront. A few museums inside the cathedrals buildings .
We went to this area in a group, and a man dropped a backpack on the ground and ran off. We were a little scared at what could be going on, but he did come back and get it after watching it for a bit...More
Jackson Square is a beautiful area, right in the heart of the French Quarter and near all the shops, restaurants and other attractions (Cafe Du'Mond, French Market, etc.) Lots of artists, selling their creations and at night, there are many palm and tarot card readers...More
New Orleans is a unique city unlike many other " cookie cut" towns. French Quarter may be the most famous location in NOLA but cannot compare to Jackson Square for it's variety of activities and options for fun for the whole family. Cabildo, riverfront, road...More
In the center of the French quarter along Decatur Street, Jackson Square offers all you want, meet up, shop, dine in, carry out, take selfies, or sit in the grass. It is THE hub for selfies. Catch tours, walking riding, carriages and horses. It truly...More
You can't visit New Orleans and skip Jackson Square. There were two live marching bands, one on the square and one that was a block away that we got to enjoy as well as many artists in the area surrounding Jackson Square displaying their art...More
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
