This was an area we went to on our bike tour.It gave us a real feel for more of New Orleans than just the touristy parts around bourbon stree,

When you've had it with the unruly crowds in the Quarter and you think you'' just die if you have to step over one more body on the sidewalk (or worse), then head a few blocks over to FM (and it's kid sister, Bywater). Here...More

Block after block of traditional wooden houses, with little traffic or noise and even less pretension. I stayed at an Airbnb shotgun house on Dauphine Street and thoroughly enjoyed being in this area. Drinks and cheap eats can be had at Mimi's nearby.

Wrapping up my trip NO by visiting the Marigny turned out to be a fantastic idea. The neighborhood offers so much: a cool vibe, cool bars/restaurants and best of all, music. If the latter is what you're up for, you'll not be disappointed. I walked...More

Yes they have moved all the jazz music down here, and music is great, but the venue nothing special.

We always stay in Marigny as it's away from the cluster of the Bourbon Street area but close enough for easy walking access. There's plenty of nice restaurants, bars and shops and you'll only notice a little less crowds. It can be very busy at...More

This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, sitting right next to the French Quarter (THE oldest). As happens in many cities, this area previously was in serious decline, and was basically a dingy, dangerous slum. However, when the World's Fair came, investors...More

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
