The one night that we had not scheduled a late dinner happened to be a Saturday. So we really got to experience what Bourbon Street has to offer. Drinking while walking around is legal and encouraged. I didn't partake but there was a lot of...More
We had never been to New Orleans. On television everything is so beautiful - balconies with flowers, etc. Much more run-down than I was expecting. We had a good time but I was just expecting so much more. It's almost like a daily carnival atmosphere....More
This part of town is great. Vibrant, friendly, great mixture of culture. The street performers are so good.
It has a great atmosphere. Bourbon Street is a must at night. Just watch out for the drink, Green Grenade. Potent.
Walking through the French Quarter is the only way to see and appreciate all of the different styles of architecture and get the local neighborhood flavor. Some areas are absolutely gorgeous with near mansions and others are destitute with homeless drug addicts dotting the sidewalks....More
If you are looking for something to remember your time in NOLA, this is the place to check out. Lots of little gifts and items, tshirts and hats. You name it, its here. The food stands are pretty decent as well.
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

Try the free spot hero app—saved vs hotel parking ($104 total for 3 day vs $38/nt hotel) and was still in and out access with valet within a block of the hotel. We have used this in Chicago and happy it is here in NOLA too... More
