So much fun to explore shops, galleries, and restaurants, see the work on display of many artists and craftspeople, catch musicians and other street performers, have your palm read. Great photo opportunities. One of NOLA's historic stops. It's a happy place.

What a great lace in the heart of the French Quarter. It is the prettiest park in New Orleans to me.

Very nice square and public space. Unlike Bourbon Street, it is wide, open and clean. The St Louis Cathedral is at one end and the statue of Jackson and the Louisiana Purchase monument in the middle. Lots of shops and tourists all around.

The experience is better when everything is explained about the people and history who lived and built the area. We used toursbylocals.com, Matt Ainsworth was excellent.

One of the best cathedrals we have ever seen here in the city! The stained glass windows, frescoes etc. are amazingly beautiful! Holiday concerts are held here frequenty in December! Attending Mass here is very special also.

Lots of things to see. Street Venders and shops surround the square. Historical. Small glimpse of old New Orleans.

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
