Andrew Jackson statue was impressive. He played a huge role in protecting the people of New Orleans and deserves his place here at the square. There is plenty of history in the area to see, with museums and St Louis Cathedral nearby, it is a...More

Jackson Square appears to always be busy and it's a great place to visit when in New Orleans. Artists displaying their wares and musicians entertaining the crowd, coupled with shops and museums surrounding the square made for an interesting visit. It is certainly worth taking...More

Whether you agree or disagree with the statues or anything else, this is a very cool, safe, clean & historical place to check out. Lots of street vendors & "palm readers" enhance the cultural experience!

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

You should be able to but they don’t all do the same routes. We didn’t take a night time one, but on our walking tours we saw several carriages giving tours. We had Dave the purple man and we took his last tour at five pm.
