If you want to get away from Bourbon Street crowds - and you do - this is the place to stay. Find a little B&B and you will be surrounded by lovely little cafes and some really good restaurants.

My friend and I stayed in the Bywater area which is peppered with restaurants and shops. Walked during the day and took cabs in the evenings. An easy walk on Royal to Bourbon, Frenchman and the French Quarter. A great area to get off the beaten path and explore what is New Orleans. I would definitely choose this area again.

We stayed in this quirky neighborhood for 2 weeks while visiting New Orleans. It is a cute little neighborhood, and it is very convenient to many awesome spots -- Elizabeth's, cute cafes, corner markets, shopping, the country club (it was still "clothing optional" during this time, lol), and Frenchmen Street is close by. We basically parked the car and rode... More

Faubourg Marigny, like in Paris, France, was developed by a French Nobelman Bernard de Marigny who "subdivided" part of his plantation back in the early 18oo's after the Viex Carre had been established...

Neighborhood to the west of the quarter. Definitely a nice place to stay but a great place to visit as well! Quaint cafes and this neighborhood is home to Frenchmen St. with the best live music in town!! Worth a visit for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and a trip to Frenchmen St. at night! Local artisans set up booths on... More

This area is great for the live music you can find there. More and more people are discovering this area and the "French Quarter" vibe is slowly moving that way. It is still a great place to go to be among locals. Make sure to check out the art market.

I was traveling with a vegetarian and came across a review for Mimi's which seemed very vegetarian friendly which it was! When you enter there is a bar downstairs,with a pool table and too many people smoking but when you go upstairs there is no smoking which we appreciated. There was a live band both times we went. We ordered... More

Loved the music surrounding the area and Loved being just a smidgen off the French Quarters. We stayed at the Jazz Suite in the middle of Frenchmen Street. The Mideastern Restaurant down the street took good care of us. And the music, ohh the music.

This was my favorite neighborhood to walk around in, and not too far from the French Quarter. Lots of great, colorful houses full of personality. People were quite friendly. I'm told this area is gentrifying, but I didn't see much evidence of it (I live in the land of gentrification). Maybe it's become safer over the years? I generally wouldn't... More
