“Music, Food, Culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

The French quarter has everything. On Sunday, there is a parade when you can get plenty of beads. Everyday the shops, clubs, and restaurants treat you right. Enjoy the experience at least once in your life. Don't forget to try oysters, and a hurricane.

“Just safe fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

a walk through all streets at any time of the day is terrific. And then Bourbon at night, up and down, and again, stopping for a drink to bring in your walk or siting in a bar watching people go by is just a great and relaxing experience. And you feel safe doing it

“Lots to do!”

It was Easter Weekend and tha area was bustling wih activity. There seemed to be something for everyone. It was crowded, but fun. Everyone seemed to adapt to the southern hospitality the region is known for.

“It's the French Quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

You can't visit New Orleans for the first time without seeing the French Quarter. Tons of shops, restaurants, things to see and do. The iron work and buildings are gorgeous.

It's the French Quarter. Go see it.
