Hop on anywhere near Canal St on St Charles St. This is the oldest continuously operated street car in the world. If you are tired of the Quarter this is the way to sit back see the "locals" and the beauty and majesty of the "garden district"! It is the cheapest tour in the world. Eating establishments, Tulane University, Loyola... More

Jackson Park is an awesome part of the French Quarter. There are local artists all around the park with their amazing work on display for sale, plus local street performers doing magic, acrobatics, and music.

Jackson Square is an amazing place. You can get beignet and coffee across the street at Cafe du Monde. Take in the beautiful Cathedral, purchase a piece of unique art from the street vendors or even have a cocktail while people watching everyone. I must see in New Orleans.

You can find a little bit of everything at Jackson Square, surrounded by bars/restaurants, artists, musicians, fortune tellers, and more. A great place to relax, and enjoy your surroundings, reflect on what is Nawlins! Enjoy!

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
