Fun to walk around

A small park with a fountain. The starting point for carriage rides. Lots of good people watching. Very close to Cafe Du Monde.

Beautiful little shops, picturesque architecture and great restaurants. We loved every minute of our time there and even got to see the annual parade called 'Barkus' - dogs of all breeds and sizes in costumes and floats. Cutest thing I ever saw!

I was drawn to this area when I caught glimps of the St Louis Cathedral. I was walking toward the church when I heard live music and noticed across from the church was a park. It was such a cool experience. People were gathered to listen to the musicians and cheer on their performance. In the park was a lovely... More

We went here after eating at Cafe Du Monde which is right across the street. On a clear sunny day you'll get a great view of all the sights in the square. Good spot to take come pictures and relax on a bench after walking around being a tourist all morning.

Quintessential NOLA complete with shops, music, fortune telling and more. We went on several occasions to people watch and sample some local culture. The cathedral is incredible.

The park has vendors all around it for any arts you may want. Located right by the museums and St. Louis Cathedral

When we visited, street performers and musicans were glutting the area. Loved the variety. One concern, solicitors are everywhere. But like everyone else in NOLA, they're so charming, you happily give them your money.

Street performers, card readers, and art work everywhere! Great place to walk through, right next to Cafe Du Monde :) Grabbed some beignets to go and walked around enjoying the art.

This place is so relaxing. A true feeling of the south. Went here on a tour then sat here to take a break while i ate my sandwich. I saw people from different ages, race, and background all sat together and watched a drummer put on a performance right in front of the church at jackson square.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
