See it before existence is challenged. Beautiful park immaculately maintained. Great place to rest and reflect when walking about the French Quarter. Lots of artists surround the place making the visit even more interesting.

Jackson square is a hub for people watching because there is always something going on. There are lots of street vendors, musicians and others milling about. Take the time to go into the park area in the center, it is beautiful and serene.

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
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
