I was here before Katrina and is was dirty and smelly and to be avoided. Since Katrina it has really been cleaned up. No trash to be found, buildings being fixed. Same tourist traps but a little better quality.

When in New Orleans, you must walk around the quaint old village of the French Quarter. The architecture is beautiful. There are great restaurants, and plenty of bars for a coffee or a whiskey.

I live in a suburb of New Orleans. I never get tired of spending a day in the Quarter. There is always something going on; it's never boring. There is a vibe that you don't find in other cities. The Quarter has something for everyone. It's family friendly, great for young people and older people alike. I like that it is walkable. Find a place to park and spend the day there. Go to Central Grocery for your muffaletta, browse the shelves, take in the aroma of the spices. Find the museums that interest you; there are many of them. I especially love the old houses. My favorites are Hermann-Grima House and Madame John's Legacy. On the square (Jackson Square) visit the 1850 House, the Cabildo, and the Presbytere. In the back of the Quarter, see the Old Ursuline Convent and the Old U.S. Mint. Take a cooking class at the New Orleans School of Cooking right there in the Quarter. Be sure and stop at the visitor's center on the Square and at the Jean Lafitte National Historic Park Visitor Center on Decatur Street for information and suggestions. The Park rangers used to do free walking tours, so check into that. I could go on and on about the French Quarter; just get yourself down there and experience it for yourself. While there stop in at the fabulous cafes and restaurants; you'll think you'd died and went to heaven. Hey, this is just daytime stuff; I didn't even get to the night life you always hear about. Book a hotel in the Quarter and bring a lot of stamina; you won't be sorry.

If you are going to take a tour make sure that you go to the 1850 House on St. Ann Street by Jackson Square and take the tour given by the Friends of the Cabildo. They are highly trained, and are volunteers.
All monies from the tours go to help support the La. State Museums in New Orleans and there are 5 in the City.

Tours are twice a day and last 2 hours and are approximately 1 mile in length.
