A 30 minute walk on the wild side down Bourbon Street is a must for any visit to New Orleans. But then it’s time to leave and enjoy Louisiana.

I don't normally give a bad review of placed, but the French Quarter was a huge disappointment, esp Bourbon Street. So many drunk people and so much second hand pot in the air. I don't go back.

If you don't go to the French Quarter, then you've missed the entire reason to be in New Orleans. The Quarter is a grid of streets that run between Canal Street and Esplanade, that houses some of the most classic, historic parts of Cajun culture....More

Bars, Resturants, and tourist attractions. This place had several vendors selling a variety of good. Which was exactly what I was looking for and was slightly better priced than bourbon street. A must visit when in New Orleans.

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
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

I love the pizza at Louisana Pizza Kitchen at 95 French Market Place, a short walk from Blue Nile. Also close is Coop's Place on Decatur but usually a line to get in.

First off, it will be very hot and muggy. Average daytime temps are 32-33C cooling down to 24-26C at night, and it also rains frequently. This will have a big impact on how much walking you will want to do, and in New... More
