Central to the French Quarter (and across the street from the Cafe du Monde and those beignets!) stands Jackson Square. It faces the Cathedral and features the famous statue of Andrew Jackson astride his steed. It has lovely blooming flowers and restful park benches, offering...More

We went to Jackson Square mainly to do the Carriage Tour [which I'd also highly recommend] but when we came up the cobblestone street and peeked around the corner, we were both in awe. Live music, horse and buggies tours, artists along the walkways, Cafe...More

Jackson Square is a must-do while in NOLA and also a fun hangout that is free. The church is impressive, the park beautiful and the soothsayers with their folding-table business, an amusement. It is also very near to the port. Definitely visit Jackson Square if...More

Make sure to visit Jackson Square at different times of the day as the photo opportunities change and you can get a different scene each time. Beautiful area!

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

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.
