If you can do a tour of some sort, it's so worth the time! Make sure to check out Frenchman street for music and hanging out. Bourbon Street is a hot mess full of hot mess and is currently filled with construction, however-I still enjoy...More

Breathtaking lace cast iron balconies adorn these gorgeous french/spaniard inspired historical homes and buildings from the early 1800's. So much history and culture. Best Food in the Whole World on every street corner and tucked in dark alleyways to cool courtyards. No place like it...More

It smelled so bad. Trash and urine and B.O.. Parking was $7.50 an hour. They need trams you can ride from one end of the quarter to the other. And maybe you need to start paintballing the graffitiers

I liked being in the French Quarter because it has a lot of character, it's wonderfully unique, & New Orleans' people are friendly. The best way to travel here is by streetcar--the fare is cheap, its quick, & very convenient

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
