I don't go in for the night scene on Bourbon Street anymore--except for accessing one of the restaurants off or near Bourbon Street. Royal Street and Jackson Square during the day are by far more fun. The street musicians are great on Royal in the early afternoon. Cafe du Monde is great any time of day.

The French Quarter is a classic area! From restaurants, bars, and fun clubs, this place rocks! Don't limit yourself to Bourbon Street. Walk around and check this place out. Better yet take a walking tour with Historic New Orleans tours. They rock and so does this place. Enjoy but don't over indulge!

You have to go, but I recommend taking a self guided walking tour from a guide book. Avoid Bourbon Street and seek out the historic houses and villas. For sure go to Jackson Square and get the picture of the cathedral, but move on, there's a lot more history to see. You can also take in the Louis Armstrong park too, which is worth a visit.

This is THE reason to come to New Awlins! Full of food, shopping, and some of America's Best people watching, the energy is definitely there! Grab an adult beverage, and take off on foot...there's something for everyone, you just need to find it!

From our Orleans Avenue hotel in the French Quarter there was so much to see, so many places to eat, shops with such character, houses with so much color, and all within easy walking distance. As evening fell the neighborhood exploded with life on the street with the sounds of music pouring out of the local bars like one big neighborhood party!
