The French Quarter is just amazing! If you are in any way interested in art you must take a walk on Royal Street. It is full of galleries that show amazing local art. There was one gallery that had photos of body art. It was amazing how the artist used the body as a canvas, totally fooled the eye! Some galleries even have the artist working right in the shop. Everyone is very willing to talk and let you look around, even if you know you cant afford it! Check it out for sure!
