What travelers to French Quarter are saying

Amazing city for food and music! Frenchman Street provides incredible live music in every door, without a cover charge. Just go in, enjoy the music, have a drink, and leave some cash in the band's tip bucket. Then travel to the next door way to do the same. And, it's not necessary to get drunk and disorderly to enjoy New Orleans. They're just as kind about serving you an ice tea or coke as an alcoholic drink. Be sure to tip extra for that though 'cause that bartender takes as much time to give you that as a different kind of drink. Gracious southern hospitality abounds. Wear study walking shoes because the sidewalks are treacherous all over the French Quarter. The narrow streets are like battlefields with potholes and service vehicles. Walk 'heads-up' all the time Don't miss the Pharmacy Museum. Don't miss Mike on piano at Lafitte's Blacksmith shop or Dana and the Boneshakers at Bamboula's. Also, we loved the shopping on Royal Street. The Forever New Orleans shop at Royal and St.Peter was a great help in finding gifts for our pre--pre-Christmas shopping.

New Orleans is in a category of it own. It is a very unique city and I am glad I got to visit and saw some very interesting things. I did not get to visit New Orleans pre Katrina so I don't have anything to compare it too, but it does seem like the city still has not recovered. The homeless population is very large there and so is the crime rate- There are people passed out in the streets around the French quarter and you will be asked more times than you can count for money from people- They get use to people walking by not paying any attention to them. It is very sad though and it would be hard to explain to children on vacation why people are passed out at 2:00 in the afternoon sleeping on cardboard on the side walk while others just step over them- I feel that something should be done about that. Lots to see and do so overall not bad for my first trip there.

Best place ever to walk around, look at stuff, eat, drink, and listen to music. I prefer to stay in the French Quarter but off of Bourbon Street (fewer drunks). We had dinner and drinks at a great little place on Frenchman, with a bluegrass band playing, then caught a second line brass band playing for tips on the walk back to the hotel. For big attractions, you can't beat the Aquarium. And be sure to either ride the street car down St. Charles or go driving around the Garden District to gawk at the magnificent houses.

Find yourself charmed by New Orleans' French Quarter

Overflowing with history, elegance and excitement, you will find the French Quarter located in New Orleans. It encompasses half a square mile of eye-catching, European -influenced buildings, many with balconies and galleries that are accented with elaborate ironwork trim.

The Quarter 's stretches of quaint shops and art galleries, fine dining establishments, cafes and hotels can be easily traversed by foot, bicycle or horse-drawn carriage. The district is a prime destination for business travelers headed to conferences at the Morial Convention Center, families looking to take in some of the abundant live music in the "birthplace of jazz," and young revelers who want to live it up on Bourbon Street, the city's infamous party venue where anything goes.

Things to see and do

Because the neighborhood is New Orleans' oldest, history buffs will find plenty of things to do in the French Quarter. On the edge of Jackson Square, right next to the grand St. Louis Cathedral, sits the Presbytere, part of the Louisiana State Museum. The site houses a Hurricane Katrina exhibit, and you can also learn about the history of Mardi Gras.

Louis Armstrong Park

Although it sits just on the edge of the French Quarter, Louis Armstrong Park feels miles away from the hubbub of Jackson Square and Bourbon Street. The secluded, beautiful park is dedicated to the memory of Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong, and it's a wonderful place to relax in the shade, take in the sight of marvelous fountains and feed some ducks. In the spring, the roses on the edge of the park all blossom simultaneously in a kaleidoscope of dazzling colors: reds, whites, pinks and yellows.

Audubon Insectarium

Families will love the Audubon Insectarium and Butterfly Garden on Canal Street, where visitors can feel at one with nature. Explore Louisiana swamps, see the world from the vantage point of an ant, and feel as though you've been transported to a magical land in the Asian garden, where you'll be surrounded by colorful butterflies and maybe even get to touch one.

Take it to the streets

Fans of street music and undiscovered artistic talent won't be disappointed in the French Quarter, where every day means musical performances, magicians, sword swallowers and even poets. Have a mystic read your fortune with tarot cards to see what your future holds, or pick up a personalized portrait or silly caricature as a souvenir token, drawn on-site at Jackson Square.

Where to stay

There's no shortage of French Quarter hotels in this New Orleans getaway, with its historic buildings steeped in elegance and traditional décor. Fans of the mysterious and paranormal may want to lodge at the Hotel Monteleone, often touted as the city's most haunted. More notable accommodations include the Royal Sonesta and the Hyatt French Quarter. Be aware that nightly rates are prone to increase during Mardi Gras, because the Quarter is the place to be every year on Fat Tuesday.

Special events

The French Quarter is a bustling neighborhood year-round. Mardi Gras is, of course, a New Orleans trademark that occurs every February or March and is an entire season rather than a single day, but travelers are likely to run into a special event no matter when they choose to visit. One of the most fun events in the city is San Fermin en Nueva Orleans, held every July. A Cajun twist on Pamplona's Running of the Bulls, San Fermin brings thousands to the streets dressed in white and red; instead of bulls, runners are chased by members of New Orleans' roller derby league who carry foam bats.

Best time to visit

Summers in Louisiana can be hot and muggy, but the summer nights are cool, and the streets tend to be less crowded. During spring, just after Mardi Gras, the French Quarter really shines. The street performers come out of their winter hibernation, flowers bloom everywhere, and you can walk around all day, beignet and café au lait in hand, in perfect mid-70s temperatures.
