Loved seeing all the artists selling their wares and the people enjoying the square. We went to a wedding in the cathedral and the square was packed when we came out.

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

The square itself is open everyday, 8am to 7pm. Most shops and restaurants around the square are open much later.
