I liked being in the French Quarter because it has a lot of character, it's wonderfully unique, & New Orleans' people are friendly. The best way to travel here is by streetcar--the fare is cheap, its quick, & very convenient

Get off Burbon Street and just stroll down the many side streets that make up The Quarter. The architecture is unlike any you will see anyplace else. Discover the difference between an balcony and a gallery and fawn over the ferns. Peek down a narrow...More

We were totally blown away by our visit. We imagined the French Quarter to be all like Bourbon St which is vulgar, dirty and not worth more than a 5 minute been there seen it visit. The rest of the French Quarter is super charming....More

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
