The French Quarter as a whole has some interesting things to see and do, however I also think it is overrated. Bourbon street smells like vomit and urine at all times of the day. Lots of drunk/passed out/strung out/homeless people. Everything is very high priced....More

Nice area to walk around next to missippi river. There are some outlets in the area that are worth visiting. There is a nice walkway next to the river. Unfortunarely there was an oil spill that was very noticeable.

So the French Quarter is dirty. It’s fun and energetic but dirty. It smells like rotting eggs. There are homeless people everywhere begging for money. Even dogs beg in this neighborhood. There’s a lot of people who look like they are on drugs or selling...More

lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
