I had not been into the Marigny for over a decade. What a difference! It's so full of history and makes for a great place to walk or to ride a bike and just observe the beauty of the neighborhoods and houses. Be sure to include the Orange Couch for coffee and a treat.

This is a really cool neighborhood with great local restaurants tucked away throughout. It's great for a stroll and right next to the French Quarter.

This is a very interesting historic neighborhood with great examples of classic New Orleans style houses including the shotgun shack. Next to the French quarter but much quieter, it's a great place to take a tour of or just wander around for a while.

Just on the outscape of the French Quarter. Great new Jazz, good restaurants on Frenchman Street, interesting other shops and it is just off the last stop on the street car.

This is the neighborhood that made us fall in love with New Orleans! Beautiful homes, wonderful local restaurants and coffee houses. All of the neighbors are friendly. If i move to NOLA this is where I would live.

The Marigny is a beautiful - if a bit dingy - neighborhood that is just a short walk from the French Quarter. The architecture of the houses is worth the trip. They aren't mansions, but they're beautiful, and many are being renovated in great ways. Base your visit around the St Roch market, which has great food and drink at... More

This is the neighborhood where things are happening. The Marigny starts at wonderful Esplanade Ave. and runs downriver to around Franklin St. It contains a myriad collection of New Orleans Creole architecture currently in every stage of renovation. Lots of creole cottages and double shotguns all painted in the colorful hues of New Orleans. Restaurants, clubs and galleries can be... 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.
