There is a market area for trinkets...lots of vendors there. The park is very nice and clean. Everything is in walking distance.

I have read books by Sherrilyn Kenyon that have featured one of the characters selling her wares here. It is beautiful and with the shops bordering the square there is a romantic aspect to all of it, especially with the church looming over the square. I can imagine many weddings and much gaiety. You definitely need to bring a camera and wear comfortable shoes. When we got there there were few artist still in the square and those that were there were packing up. My husband found a painting that he liked but in the end he didn't purchase it. There were a few musicians and a couple of Tarot card readers still hanging out also the St Louis Cathedral was closed for the day. It was about 4:30 PM. I ambled into a couple of the shops that bordered the square. One in particular had some beautiful Johnny Was shirts but they are always expensive and the proprietor acted like he didn't want to be bothered. He didn't look up. He didn't make eye contact and when I said something he ignored me, so I left. We did go to the bookstore right around the corner. I think William Faulkner had lived above it. My friend bought me the new Patti Smith book and we ventured out and walked up Royal Street. I would come back and I'd like to check out St Louis Cathedral but it will have to be another time.

We went to Jackson Square while in New Orleans. Its a nice place to see. We especially liked seeing St. Joseph Cathedral. Decorations were up for the Christmas Holidays.

This is centrally located in the French quarter and a must see if you are wandering around. Grab and drink and enjoy the music. There are always different acts and artists setup around the square. It's not very big but has some cool statues and landscaping.
