    Jackson Square is great. It's usually filled with street performers, artists, fortune tellers and the like. Always something going on. It's a great place to just sit down and people watch.

    Toward the river you will find a seating area developed for a variety of entertainers. They usually do 2+ shows a day and seem to draw a crowd.

    An interesting area with St Louis Cathedral making it quite a focal point. There are psychic readers, street paints, musicians and performers all around the square to entertain you.

    Jackson Square is a pedestrian mall, and an iron fence that has been used for decades by artists, at times numbering 300 or more, who work
    and display at Jackson Square.
