I've been to the FQ a few times and keep returning. It's not for the faint of heart and I wouldn't recommend bringing kids. The history is worth investigating with so many things to check out, like museums and parks. I don't drink so I...More

Canal yes but Bourbon was a little scary looking. You can feel a little uneasy if you’re paying attention to the surroundings. Travel in groups.

The French Market was fun to walk through. Lots of vendors. Some selling hokey things others selling nicer items. There were some vendors selling good snacks and lunch items. Worth a walk through for sure!

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great

Most of the NOLA is geared to adults, but you can organize a "kid-friendly" itinerary. What kind of "adult themes" are you talking about? Foodie? Drinking? Historical? Bachelor Party? Girls Getaway? Shopping?
