Neighbourhood
Tremé
That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and tradition is, put simply, just how people go about their daily lives in this historic part of town. As one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.

No, they are not. There is a city bus which stops in front of the house which can take you to the French Quarter or the nearest streetcar.

Parking is free around Degas House on the side street, which is where most B&B guests park. Parking for events is also free, and that is in our fenced-in parking lot a block away. If you choose to park there, even as a B&B... More
