Lots to see around the square. Street music and artists. Lots of places to eat nearby. Catch a horse drawn carriage tour here, and hear the tales of the Big Easy.

lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port

The river boat cruises are about 10 min walk to Jackson Square. The GOP on bus is in the same area of cruises depending on service you use. March the weather should be pretty nice
