We saw many street art vendors and public performers. There was a living statue, a hip hop dance crew, and a jazz band. It was a very awesome place for people watching.

You are in the heart of the French Quarter. There is a lot to see and absorb. Make sure you stop at the Cathedral.

Lots to see here with the St Louis Cathedral on one side and the Mississippi on the other. You need to go if you enjoy a square.

Louisiana Native. Also entertained walking through here. The street performers are too interesting. We took pictures here by the statues. A beautiful piece of Louisiana history.

The landscaping at Jackson square was well kept and appealing. With a backdrop of the beautiful St Louis cathedral, the street performers and venders were a great way to spend a leisurely afternoon.

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

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
