    When you come to New Orleans you should go to French Quarter or you should go to a club.
    The French Quarter has many shops that you can go to it is an all day thing you can take a carriage ride through the quarter if you want to.

    You have to go to the French Quarter!
    Today, the French Quarter is a world of narrow streets and historic houses, where profusions of tropical flowers peek from hidden courtyards, the mingled aromas of garlic, onions, fresh-baked goods and coffee gently scent the breeze, and a vibrant cacophony of music, conversation, and laughter infuses the atmosphere with the promise of excitement.

    The beautiful wrought-iron balconies give the French Quarter its identity, You know you're in New Orleans if you hear Jazz pouring out of every cafe (bar) and you can see the typical balconies everywhere.

    If you're like me, you'll appreciate the French Quarter a lot more during the day than at night. I prefer gazing at buildings to staring into a beer cup. The Quarter and the nearby Fauborg Marigny are fascinating from an architectural point of view. Wander around for a few days, take in the sights, and make sure to get some good cafe breaks in.

    At night, the Quarter--especially Bourbon Street--can range from crowded and loud to swarming and deafening. The one night that this was really a lot of fun for me was on Halloween, when the parade of fantastically crazy costumes made it all worthwhile. (By the way, there is a straight end and a gay end of Bourbon Street...I found the gay end to be a lot more fun and the costumes way more inventive!) If you're a big partyer, you'll love it here. If you're not, there are plenty of other evening options in N.O.

    The French Quarter is a must but also take a ride on the trolley to St. Charles District.
    The French Quarter is very charming and quaint. There is a lot of interesting architecture and the shops and restaurants are situated in these same buildngs. St. Charles District is an area of old mansion type houses. It is quite different from the French Quarter so a nice contrast.

    Street performer at French Quarter

    Drop a dollar and the mime artist will start a short performance just for you. A French culture being adopted here in New Orleans.

    French Quarter is easy to navigate

    The French Quarter is designed in a grid, with the square centrally located. It's easy to navigate and reflects its French and Spanish heritage in the way it was laid out.
