Jackson Square is a true New Orleans Landmark and a spot you should not miss as you walk through the French Quarter. Gorgeous landscaping and neighboring St. Louis Cathedral add to the ambiance.

So much to do in this area. It’s a must see for sure. Beautiful architecture (the Church is immaculate), and has a beautiful park next to it. There is also live music, craft booths, and lots of food!

French Quarter
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

The river boat cruises are about 10 min walk to Jackson Square. The GOP on bus is in the same area of cruises depending on service you use. March the weather should be pretty nice
