St. Louis Cathedral and other attractions are located i this square. You can take horse driven carriage rides, eat beignets, or go to many different restaurants nearby. The Mississippi river is just across the street..

Between the green grass, flowers, fountain, sculpture and building ( that gives the backdrop similar to that of the Magic Kingdom's castle) it is the best photo op in New Orleans so far! Lots of artist, palm readers plus live entertainment such as Jazz bands and magicians encircle the square. It is also a great place to catch a carriage... More

This square is the heart of the French Quarter. The St Louis Cathedral is at one end and the Mississippi is at the other end. Beautiful place to walk around,sit and relax or possibly listen to some Jazz.

Jackson Square is always hopping. Music, Museum, street hawkers, close to Cafe du Monde and the river. One day we passed thru and they were getting ready for a new assistant bishop and saw plenty of participants dressed up to celebrate. Lots of benches to rest up and people watch...

A scenic square in New Orleans. A statue of Andrew Jackson in the middle of the square which is backed by a cathedral and other historic buildings and also provides a nice place to sit and enjoy your thoughts and feelings in New Orleans.

What a wonderful area to just enjoy the atmosphere of New Orleans! Jackson Square a lot of fun to sit and watch all the people and the artists and crafters and everything else that is going on (which is something different all the time) The Church is beautiful and the park is enjoyable. All of the people were so friendly.

Loved the music, artist, fortune tellers and St. Louis church. Each day is a different experience. They have different artist and musicians each day.

The musicians and artist in the Square just take you back into another time. It really is amazing to walk among them as they sit and jazz or paint an interesting picture. Love everything about the Square.

Go for the people-watching, the art, the soothsayers, face painting and a beignet at Cafe Du Monde. Admire the Cathedral.
