Great connection from French Quarter to Frenchmen Street

There are lots of good restaurants and bars as well as interesting residences along Chartres Street. This is a great place to stroll and avoid all the chaos of Bourbon Street.

Home to the pharmacy museum and some fun bars and food stops. Chartres Street is a nice walk and not quite so crowded as other areas of the French Quarter!

Running parallel to our bed & breakfast and just steps away from the French Quarters, Chartres Street is just one of many in the area that offer an abundance of music, savory dishes, a feast for the eyes and memories of a lifetime!

There are so many interesting shops on this street-- a paper shop that has been in the same family for 6 generations, for example. Lovely restaurants, show shops, a used book store. An alternative walk to going on Bourbon Street which is really a howl in the ear.
