What a cool neighbourhood.

It would take a lot longer to explore all of the sights here. Wandering through the streets is just fabulous.

We styed in this neighborhood and did a "Tours By Foot" which was awesome as we really learned a lot about the history of the area. The architecture is so interesting and there are a lot of little cafes and restaurants, it is a nice place to visit to get away from the French Quarter.,

I love the Fauborg Marigny neighborhood, it's funky and interesting. Many hole in the wall bars and restaurants. The houses are beautiful, even when they are rotting and falling down. Even the decay is interesting!

I'm no expert, but as 60-somethings, we felt very safe walking in the day time. Charming architecture.

If you want to get a sense of what the French Quarter must have been like before becoming the international destination for people who want to binge-drink during the day and pee on the street at night, this is definitely a must see. Our second favorite neighborhood in the city after Uptown.

We saw the district & Frenchman's St thru a guided walking tour, great to see the architecture and history. The district is going thru a revival & restoration which is great to see the old unrestored beside those taking on a new life.

If you go into Faubourg Marigny from Frenchmen Street you see some wonderful parts of the city with stunning houses - some being sold by Southeby's. Some good eating places too.

The area is certainly up and coming with new bars and great restaurants. One may feel the neighborhood is a bit seedy, but it is safe. There is alot of restoration going on and you can tell this will be the NEW place to be.

The other reviews of FM speak to all that is so right on with this side of NOLA. From the best music to the best BBQ (see The Joint reviews) all set amidst architecture that matched the late October 2016 weather...oh so Caribbean. Just perfect. You gotta go here! Highly recommend you take the Free Tours By Foot 2 hour... More

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.
