We went to the Jazz Museum and the Cabildo museum, both were very interesting. I enjoyed the Jazz Museum more because of the interactive exhibits. The prices are reasonable and you can buy tickets for any of the three museums there and not have to...More

This place is well kept and beautiful. The trees and grass are green. The flowers are blooming. The statue of Andrew Jackson on a horse is picturesque. It is small, so I only spent about five minutes walking through and taking pictures.

Fantastic place to burn off all of the Beignets you have just eaten, check out some street performers & vendors, take in the local history and architecture. We found ourselves walking around here a few times during the trip.

Visiting Jackson Square was special. We ate beignets and had Cafe au Lait at Cafe du Monde while listening to street performers outside. It is a great 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
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively

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.
