I think we must have visited at a bad time. We walked around a lot but there was hardly any music anywhere though plenty of artists and Tarot card readers. Very surprised and rather disappointed. Some of the buildings are impressive.

Great atmosphere...I preferred it during the day. Not as many drunk people. So much history and plenty of interesting tours

We were there during the french quarter music festival...second week of april...it was great! The street is very historic. You get a sense of an amazing history just walking down this street.

Love the atmosphere, getting beignets (a must) walking around enjoying the wonderful city. I' not sure of the exact dates that I went but I go there fairly often.

Are you really going to go to NOLA and not check out the French quarter? Of course not. It’s fun and offers different kinds of experiences. It’s upscale and dive bar all in one. Enjoy the ride and just go with the flow.

Spent a few days in New Orleans and thoroughly enjoyed walking the streets. So many nice bars and restaurants with live bands playing in the streets. Great atmosphere and very laid back. Love this city!

It’s always good eating, people watching and shopping in the French Quarter if you choose where you walk. Bourbon Street is gritty and there are many more “down and out” people than I remember from previous visits; some pretty loud and annoying. But there’s great...More

It's easy to spend days in the French Quarter and find new things every day. We spent several days shopping and then enjoyed the night life as well. The street musicians throughout the French Quarter are great and a lot of fun as well. Of...More

Great cultural experience. From seniors to children all are tourists to this place. Get up too early and walk you will smell the garbage, human waste and see the garbage littered everywhere. By 9:00 AM, the garbage and trash are gone but never the smell....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

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
