This place is so relaxing. A true feeling of the south. Went here on a tour then sat here to take a break while i ate my sandwich. I saw people from different ages, race, and background all sat together and watched a drummer put on a performance right in front of the church at jackson square.

Quintessential New Orleans. I never tire of wandering around the square, looking at the architecture, the artists and of course people watching.

This is an area the size of a short block. It is fenced, with a pretty little park inside. There is a large statue of Andrew Jackson inside, hence the name. In back of the Square is the St. Louis Cathedral, which you should take the time visit. In front of the Square are horse and carriages for hire. It... More

Great place to visit . Hard to miss, its by the Jax brewery and Café Du Monde. Probably most photographed place in Louisiana. Its where you can take a carriage ride, or stroll around the square checking out the artists and fortune tellers. Street musicians abound, and most are damn good. Light a candle in the cathedral or go to... More

Jackson is in a great location that is pretty close to the river. You are near Cafe DuMonde which is a place you must go to for beignets. Jackson square had the the oldest Catholic Cathedral in the country and a museam as well. Nice place to relax and take a break from walking around town.

So much to see, the buildings, the art, the psychics, the square. Make sure to read about Baroness Pontalba's part in the history of the square - fascinating!

Lovely park in the middle of the French quarter. The architecture of the basilica and cabildo is not to be missed.

We stayed close to the square so we visited quite often. Its a great place to look at the local artists or just take a break in the shade. And its less than a block to the river!

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.
