This is centrally located in the French quarter and a must see if you are wandering around. Grab and drink and enjoy the music. There are always different acts and artists setup around the square. It's not very big but has some cool statues and...More

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
