This is a must to appreciate the history of the city and the architecture of the french quarter. Easy to walk many great tour guides. Will give you a good starting guide as what to do and where to spend more time in the area.
French Quarter is unlike anything I have experienced. It is very old with interesting architecture throughout. The streets get washed and cleaned up in certain areas to keep things clean. I was surprised that there were no mold smells considering how humid it is there....More
From the markets to the shops, to the bars, to the parks and then looking at the Mississippi! A great place to people watch and really get the vibe of New Orleans. Put on your walking shoes and experience it from one end to the...More

We loved an afternoon biking through the French Quarter and eating, eating, eating. So much to see and photograph, so the bike was the way to go, stopping at each place that caught our eye. The smells, the people, the architecture, the sounds, jazz.. the...More
The French Quarter has restaurants and bars as it's primary businesses. There is Jazz music going all the time. People are dancing in the streets, but most interesting is everyone is drinking. You can drink anywhere, even in the streets. You should visit the area...More
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
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

Always Frenchmen street for great jazz. Many bars post their bands online monthly so check out DBA, Spotted Cat, Maison just to name a few. You walk into any bar grab a seat and stay for a set. Not your type of music move... More
Always Frenchmen street for great jazz. Many bars post their bands online monthly so check out DBA, Spotted Cat, Maison just to name a few. You walk into any bar grab a seat and stay for a set. Not your type of music move onto the next venue. Very few cover charge bands, so bring cash for drinks/set. French quarter try Starlight lounge, tuba skinny most Wednesdays, and Bourbon Orleans bar. During the day Royal Street for great street musicians, Doreen Ketchens.

With one day to visit, I would definitely come to the French Quarter. It is jammed full of all things New Orleans: great food, great music, and lots of history. Jackson Square is just steps from the French Market!
