If you have never traveled to New Orleans, let me be the first to tell you you must go at least once. Filled with quaint bars, live music, great food, and fun, there is no place quite like it. You don't have to spend a...More

This is my third trip to the Quarter. Love the history, the music and the food. Tour guides are the best! I will probably not visit in high summer again. Hardly any street musicians or performers. The heat? The road construction? Unsure.

I loved walking around the French Quarter during a recent visit. I just regret not having more time to explore! The architecture is amazing; the wrought iron rails with hanging plants are just lovely. As in any big city, you do have to be careful...More

Great architecture and ambience, excellent food, almost European feel. You can shop til you drop or just people watch, and there's music everywhere! Bourbon Street was a bit seedy but Royal Street and the rest of the area was great, at least during the day....More

What a fun place to be. The atmosphere was exciting & music everywhere. Great little restaurants & coffee shops and/or pubs to stop in & relax for a while. Will definitely go back.

Crime here is on the rise. The quarter used to be a place where friends could go put, dance a little, drink a little, and enjoy yourself. Its full of young drunks and too crowded to enjoy ones self.

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

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

No idea, but it is hard to drive an RV down many of the narrow streets and making turns can be almost impossible.
