    Jazz it up, National Park Style

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the newer additions to the National Park Service's portfolio is the New Orleans Jazz National Historic Park, which is located off Decatur Street in the heart of the French Quarter. This small visitor center is a good start into representing one of the most influential music movements in history. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the roots of jazz, and its influences in so many other music genres since. There are also audio stations set up for you to hear the various forms, and plenty of history to go around. The overall building is fairly small, but it is large enough to hold small concerts, which seem to go on every day. We missed the performance for the day when we went, but I will definitely make a concerted effort to attend the concert next time.

    They also have a wide selection of jazz titles for purchase as well, so I did grab a New Orleans Jazz Christmas album to listen to this Christmas.
