We spent two afternoons strolling Royal Street and loved it. We especially like the range of art galleries but there are antique shops, restaurants, chic clothing and other stuff as well. Don't miss it.

This is one of my favorite streets to window shop. It's gorgeous but wildly expensive for buying. I love all the quaint gas lanterns along the way.

Lots of attractions, plenty of jazz and lots of places to eat. I had jambalaya at the Hard Rock cafe and it was very good.

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
