Jackson square is a hub for people watching because there is always something going on. There are lots of street vendors, musicians and others milling about. Take the time to go into the park area in the center, it is beautiful and serene.

French Quarter
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

The river boat cruises are about 10 min walk to Jackson Square. The GOP on bus is in the same area of cruises depending on service you use. March the weather should be pretty nice
