So much here to see - the park itself was green, and peaceful, and very tropical, we saw banana trees with bunches of bananas hanging down. St. Louis Cathedral is magnificent. The first time we came, we could not go in because there was a...More
The first time I walked by Jackson Square I just felt drawn to it for some reason. It is beautifully maintained, the foliage created a nice shade, the wrought iron fence and being directly in front of St Peters Cathedral added to the ambience and...More
If you're in NOLA and in the French Quarter you will most likely end up in Jackson Square. It is a must see and one of the most familiar places in the city. The park isn't huge but is beautifully landscaped and a hub of...More
So much going on here! Whatever you want is all around the square. The fence line is loaded with tons of local art/artists - you're sure to find whatever you're looking for. Plenty of shops, bars, restaurants! St. Louis Cathedral is amazing!!! When in town,...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.

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.
