We were in Jackson square frequently to visit museums, the Cathedral, and to meet up with tour guides. The worst bands in New Orleans play here, probably because they can't get gigs anywhere else. I don't think any musician had any idea what the other...More

There's always something interesting to see in Jackson Square. The music, the art, the fortune tellers, the street perfomers, the mule carriages. It's definitely a great place to visit and people watch.

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

The river boat cruises are about 10 min walk to Jackson Square. The GOP on bus is in the same area of cruises depending on service you use. March the weather should be pretty nice
