“Walking tour of Jackson Square and area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

An interesting area to visit, beautiful park, interesting people watching, close to the Quarter, interesting original art. We did a guided walking tour, which I would recommend. I think there is too much 'history' that a visitor would miss out on without a guided tour.

Gorgeous square outside St.Louis cathedral. We bought lunch at a local grocery and ate in the park. Fabulous atmosphere and amazing scenery.

“Great place to sit and enjoy beignets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Great place to people watch - and make sure you visit Cafe DuMond - sit in the cafe (the line looks long, but it really moves fast) or take some beignets and cafe au lait to go and sit in the park in front of the cathedral.

“Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We loved going to Jackson Square to people watch. There were artists all over selling their pictures. There were random bands playing and other street performers around. It was just a great relaxing place to hang out.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Jackson Square is a must stop for anyone visiting New Orleans. The french district feels entirely out of Europe, and visitors will be transported to another continent. Currently the Christmas tree was up across from the square, which was really beautiful. There is always a lot of fantastic activity around the square, and looking at all the wonderful artists is fun as well.
