Great place to sight see, must take a carriage ride, Pete was our host or tour guide, we had fun with him. He was full of local history and the gossip of everything around...Ride at night if you like the night crowd! In the day walk around the Square and take it in....WOW it's a mixed market place for vendors and tourist! SO MUCH FUN! Safer in the day...Warning: Hippies hangout...I was asked for food, not money...I will feed anyone who needs it!!! At night you will find homeless people or hippies sleeping where ever! Overall....we had a greattime!!!!

Be sure to spend some time walking the square. Lots of street performers and artist work from this area of the French quarter. The grounds of the square are beautiful. A great place to snap some pictures.

Fun to walk around and see the history of New Orleals. Went to the area two different days. No problems. The road construction is bad, but we were walking. The city is getting for the Super Bowl.

Jackson Square is the perfect place on a hot day to just sit and watch the world go by! There is often a jazz band playing and street artists displaying their wares. Very relaxed. It is easy to see why New Orleans is called the big easy!
