Love the French Quarter! The history, the buildings, the people. The only thing I don't like so much is the smell of bourbon street 😆

Hotel was in the French Quarter, spent 3 days walking and admiring architecture, visiting shops and talking with craftsmen. French Market, restaurants and people watching.

The French market has lots to see. Make sure you walk the whole market. It’s not just Chinese junk but lots of local artists too. Muffuletta we had for lunch was deliciously

Not beautiful but goes from super luxury shops to reality. Very useful street as all the cross streets go whereever you want to go. Remember cross streets change their name at Canal Street!

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
