Have spent too much time in the French Quarter and not wandered too far away, what a mistake. This is so close but is absolutely wonderful, a vibrant neighbourhood with history and char, lovely old homes but so different to the Quarter.

Faubourg (suburb) Maringy (designed and sold by Bernard de Maringy) was the home to free people of color in the 1800s, has seen good times and bad, and is now the new "in" place for Jazz and dining. Architecture of shotgun houses as well as...More

If you want to see some of the older homes of New Orleans, this is a must see area. Lots to see, many different styles, and away from the French Quarter bustle

If you want to stay in the French Quarter area but also want to avoid the mess that is the Quarter, head a little east to the Marigny. Similar feel and style, but a very enjoyable experience!

We stayed in the Marigny District in a VRBO and bounced back and forth between the Quarter and Marigny. This was a wonderful change from staying in the Quarter and only doing Quarter activities.

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining

From Canal St (Central Bus District) you would follow the river and first you hit the French Quarter, then the Faubourg Marigny and then the Bywater. They are all built along the river, the original city. Short distance... More
