I was just curious as to how DT Van compares to some other U.S. cities as far as safety and atmosphere. Has anyone out there ever stayed in the French Quarter (New Orleans) or maybe downtown Nashville? Or any other major U.S. downtown area? I was kind of thinking DT Van had kind of a French Quarter feel as far as shops, eats, sites... but quite safer than the FQ. Please correct me if I'm wrong about the safer part. I just want to know what I'm getting into. The bars and clubs and strip joints and all that is no biggie to us. Just makes it a little more lively than usual. But our primary concern is safety. Thanks for any input.
