What a beautiful wedding we were able to catch as they exited the cathedral into the square. Exciting NOLA energy, dancing, and performers. A must see that doesn't take any amount of time but definitely a part of history you shouldn't miss. The architecture is wonderful as well.

Walking around and through Jackson Square is always moving. There is so much history in the city and this place has much to see. Form the Cathedral , to the Cabildo and the Museum. All the artists that hang their wares the fence is always nice to see.

Wander around the Square and drop into quaint little shops, witness street performances, and look at the works of local artists.

Love the cathedral! It's absolutely gorgeous and a MUST see. Lots of entertainment in the way of street performers. The only "con", if that's the word one would use, is that all the homeless people taking up the benches. It'd be nice to have a place to sit after spending hours walking around.

Lovely stroll though the beautiful and enchanting Jackson Square, a historic park in the French Quarters. Rich in culture and culture. In Jackson Square you can enjoy beautiful view of the Mississippi River or take a Carriage Ride around French Quarters. Overlooking Jackson Square is the St. Loius Cathedral , a magnificent structure and historic landmark. It is in fact... More

This is a nice looking park, well maintained, benches to rest and listen to the surrounding area. Great place to use the St. Louis Cathedral as a backdrop. Nice statue of Andrew Jackson

Jackson square is full of artists, musicians and shops. The musicians are true NOLA musicians and the artists talkative. Impromptu shows pop up all the time. Stores are quaint.

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.
