“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Don't visit NOLA without going to Jackson Square. The shopping is great and St. Louis Cathedral is fabulous. The artwork inside in phenomenal. And don't forget to have biegnets at Cafe Du Monde.

“Loved the Art, the Music, and the Scenery”

A very picturesque park and square in front of the St. Louis cathedral where artists sell their work, musicians play, and the beauty of old New Orleans is on display.

“Shops, Street Performers, Weddings and Artists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Jackson Square, home to The Saint Louis Cathedral, boasts artists, street performers and many small shops. It's a sight seer's mecca where you can enjoy people watching, take a horse and buggy ride or just inhale the local culture. Quite enjoyable.
