They were open and ready to share... More

The weather was perfect while we visited the French Quarter. Fun and interesting. We enjoyed seeing the historic buildings, not to mention the great food. The street musicians were fun.

I used to live across the Mississippi from the French Quarter. I took a ferry over every weekend.

Had the best time in the French Quarter! I love the open container laws and all the cool bars and shops! Favorite Bars were : Krazy Korner, followed by Pat O'Brien's, and Lafitte's Blacksmith shop.
