Beautiful square with statue of Andrew Jackson as the main attraction and St Louis Cathedral right across the plaza. Beautifully decorated for Xmas. Fun shops & restaurants along the 4 sides of the park including Cafe du Monde.

Jackson square is a lovely place to look at. The cathedral is gorgeous, the grounds of the park well kept, the area surrounding is architecturally interesting.. It can get crowded and there are often artists and buskers outside of the park as well as a variety of fortune tellers. Nice place to stroll and if you like to people watch... More

The cathedral is beautiful and classic New Orleans. There are all kinds of interesting shops to visit around the square and places to eat po boys and... More

If you're staying in the French Quarter you should make your way to Jackson Square. The square is vibrant with local artists and you get a pulse of the city. There are horse drawn carriges out front and of course the church is quite spectacular. We came again at night to start a ghost tour and it was quite haunting... More

This is a popular location in New Orleans. Beautiful when all the flowers are in bloom! There are usually many street performers, singers, palm readers, fortune tellers, and artists around the square on the weekends. Plenty of shops and restaurants around too! Catch a horse drawn carriage here for a tour of the area!

Jackson Square is ideally located in the Quarter to take advantage of restaurants and shops. Artists are everywhere. and people watching and photo ops are some of the best in the area. Carriages line up here as well.

Please visit this area. If you don't you will have missed a good time. There is so much to see in this cheerful area of the French Quarter. Take a walk around and listen to upbeat local music, funny magician banter, and fortune telling for anyone who wants to know their future. The history you learn here is amazing as... More

This is a must-see after or before beignets and coffee at Cafe du Monde. It is in front of the St. Louis Cathedral. The submarine will give you an idea of the progress of technology. There are artists here on a weekend but most of their wares are not good. In front of the Cathedral, you may well find a... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
