Walked through the square on a Sunday morning. Peaceful, quiet and clean. Artists on the street had beautiful pieces displayed. The fountain and statue were beautiful. Must see when in town.

Historical site. Quick, easy and does not take long to see. Often you have street musicians or entertainment near by. Part of French quarter you do not want to miss

This was great part of our trip. The performers and artists are great and really lend to the creativity of the city itself. Lots of photo opportunities.

Take your time to enjoy this square park. It is located in the heart of the French Quarters. It's a wonderful meeting place to enjoy the surroundings.

It was a bit crowded, but beautiful. The highlight are the art and "mystic" vendors that are around the perimeter. Go for the night time palm reading if it doesn't creep you out :)

Consider this the anchor for the French Quarter. Want to meet someone? Need a place to navigate from? Need the best place to grab a mule-drawn ride, quirky art or people watch. Go no further. Might be sketchy late at night but daytime is fine.

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

Still there :-)
Hi! I am planning a trip to NOLA and it seems that Jackson Square is a must. I am looking into traveling there in October. Are there street performers and artist there during the week or just weekends? What days are best for a lively experience?
