It was all we expected. Rather loud at times but it is the fun capital of the city . It smelt a bit in the mornings but easily forgiven with the southern friendly hospitality and the way everyone says good morning .

The French Quarter in New Orleans is such an iconic place. The streets can be a little sticky first thing in the morning, though, after much spilled beer. Don't miss Cafe du Monde!

It’s pretty tame in the morning and early afternoon. Around 5 pm the party begins. It’s lots of fun but be aware. Someone is always out to make a buck anyway they can.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
