We went with our teens who are into history. Interestingly there were busloads of high school students visiting while we were there. The teens enjoyed the Cafe Du Monde beignets and especially the ghost tour at night (we find these tours especially interesting way to get to know a city and an overview of the history). We also enjoyed the street performances and the architecture as well as the food. The down side was that it is really true what they they about various odors here... along with unidentifiable substances on the sidewalk.
Overall a very worthwhile and unique place to visit!

The French Quarter is a mix of the serious (Supreme Court of Louisiana which is worth seeing) and the seedy (Bourbon Street). Bourbon street is worth a visit at least once at night. Its closed to street cars. While there are plenty of strip clubs there, the preservation jazz club is also there and definitely worth a visit.

We found the French quarter somewhat dirty and looking like it needs a bath. However the the architecture is stunning as well as the historical buildings and the preservation that has been done. We actually found a lot of the history very interesting and visiting the city graveyard was quite eye-opening both in culture and in the role that it's made to help shape this Unique City
