If you visit the French Quarter, sooner or later you'll end up in Jackson Square. This busy square has the St. Louis Cathedral on one side, and looks out on the Mississippi on the opposite side. Old, classic buildings that house varioous businisses, mostly stores...More

Such a fun place. There are plenty of street entertainers, people selling art and people just milling about. It a fun place to kick back, relax, take it all in and maybe do a little people watching.

There is so much architectural interest in Jackson Square it is hard to see in two days. The park is great for a relaxing break.

A place to sit and watch the weddings that take place. Great music during French Quarter Fest 2018. Bring a chair and buy food and drinks from wonderful local vendors.

I would suggest visiting Jackson Square just for the beauty of the cathedral. It was very pretty to see and you can walk through the cathedral. The street music was a lot of fun as well.

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

I wouldn’t stay on Rampart, Canal, or Bourbon. Otherwise, I would consider any other street inside the French Quarter.

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.
