Jackson Square was a nice place to sit, watch people go by and listen to the music outside. There is a small square across the street from the St. Louis Cathedral and Andrew Jackson statue. Nice place to sit on a park bench and rest...More

The square sits between the Mississippi River and the Cathedral of St. Louis the King. It make for a picture postcard view from the overlook by the river. The artists that surround the square have something for everyone. Probably the prettiest spot in N.O.

It is a really nice place to find real art with the artists there to tell you about their works. The art is for sale and is beautiful.

While I cannot say you need to spend a lot of time here, you really must see it. The gardens in the park are amazing, and you can enjoy your coffee in this peaceful spot.

You would be mad not to come here if you are in New Orleans. A beautiful church with a park area surrounded by loads of interesting art to peruse and buy if you want. On the river side there are horse drawn carriage rides available.

Great place to wander round and listen to street musicians and watch the artists painting. Go in the museum next to St. Louis Cathedral and see the Hurricane Katrina exhibition. Makes you realise just what an ordeal they went through!

A must-see location when in New Orleans! The small park is clean and well-maintained and altogether attractive. Ringing the square you will find interesting shops and depending on the time, artists (both real and con) who will sell you paintings or tell your fortune.

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
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

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
