You can't visit New Orleans and skip Jackson Square. There were two live marching bands, one on the square and one that was a block away that we got to enjoy as well as many artists in the area surrounding Jackson Square displaying their art...More
Psychics, singers, and other street life abounds around the square. This evening there were ten psychics patiently waiting for tourists to pop by. I have also seen some amazing painters here.
Be aware that there are the down and out here as well.
Around the park you will easily find the hustle and bustle of street performers, vendors, and artists lining the walkways.One side of the park is where you will find horse carriages all lined up waiting for their next rider. At night the scenery changes and...More
The square is surrounded by a mash-up of artists, street performers and Lucky Dog stands. My wife noted that the statue of Jackson appeared as if the General was lifting his hat to shield his eyes from the late afternoon sun.
You will come across great musicians, exceptionally talented artist, fortune tellers.
Jackson Square is beautifully kept. Very clean. A nice place to sit in the early morning with some coffee. Carriage rides are along side so it's perfect to get in 2 attractions at once....More
Near the Mississipi, in front of the St. Louis Cathedral, this is a nice square where a lot of tourist walk and artist sing, song, make shows like magic trick or read tarot. The park is nice, cleaned and with a big central statue.
Jackson Square is the heartbeat of the French Quarters with the beautiful St. Louis Cathedral in the backdrop... and the sweet smells of Cafe du Monde if the foreground... there's no other place like it! New Orleans is a jewel dropped straight from the heavens...More
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.
