Hard to believe it was underwater back in 05. Im glad to see it has retained all its historic charm. The smell of the real gas lamps as you walk the street brings a real nice touch. Lots of good restaurants in this area. A must visit area when in Nola

The historic buildings and culture of New Orleans is wonderful. If you have children or teens, stay away from Bourban Street. It is a great big party and a lot of young women with few clothes inviting you into their establishments.

So many crazy people just having fun and letting go! Stayed in the French Quarter and there are lots of restaurants and bands playing in bars all up and down the streets.

the streets and side walks are in such bad repair it is easy to tirp and fall. I saw a woman trip on the rubble that is a side walk and her glasses got scratched. The smell on the streets was very bad.
