What a lovely, curious, fascinating, strange, hedonistic, historical, atmospheric place. Really glad we made the effort to visit.

Terrific, this is where most of hotels that highlight the region are located and where the history is so do not bypass.

Bourbobn st. etc busy on the friday, so I guess always busy. Lots of noise and music from the bars and street performers incl drummerd. Did not do a night visit and would have liked a ghost tour .

Was wonderful to hang-out in the French quarter. Frenchmen street, Decatur street and others are charming and perhaps somewhat less touristy than Bourbo street. Enjoyed hanging out in streets, listening to jazz music in street or local bars. There is a very nice craft market...More

The French quarter has so many different things to offer. The food, however, is hit or miss. Sometimes you find a great hidden gem and then others it becomes a waste of money. Lots of partying and many shops that basically are selling the same...More

Loved all the Chic stores, Bars and Restos with an old look and ambiance that make you feel back in the seventeenth century. The Quarter is everything in one place and people ready to party all the time. Good food and good times

French Quarter
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
