Just walk along this street and you will find many clubs to drop into and enjoy the wonderful musicians of New Orleans. Jazz, swing, brass and some great voices like Big Willie and Walter (Wolfman) Washington make this a "don't miss" experience.

I have not been here for some time but what I recall is that I really wanted more time. We did not get here till late in the day after a long flight from California so we were tired. But it deserves another visit and a lot more time. The music is amazing and people are all just walking and... More

My visits to New Orleans had only included one brief walk to this area about a year ago. It was early afternoon and not a lot was going on. This year I visited and got to explore both in the afternoon and late evening. There are restaurants galore and music on every block in the evening. The architecture is beautiful.... More

We stayed in this neighborhood during our recent visit to New Orleans. The neighborhood has a nice mix of houses, restaurants, bars, and people. It includes Frenchmen Street's great assortment of venues, and is easy walking distance to the French Quarter (also much quieter at night). Definitely worth a return visit.

The Fabourg Marigny is the cultural heart of New Orleans. If you want to see the REAL local establishments, this is where you want to be. From old time record and book stores to locally owned eateries, broaden your horizons and step out of the French Quarter. You'll be glad that you did!

Faubourg is where the locals eat, drink and be merry. Avoid the Quarter and the overpriced drinks and over served tourists and meet the heartbeat of NOLA. The local establishments have so much more to offer and they take personal pride in their food and entertainment. No trip to New Orleans is complete without hanging at The Apple Barrel, Snug...

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...
