How cool is it to visit the old New Orleans mint and learn about the birth of Jazz! Great display on Satchmo while we were there! The real cool thing about the park was that the park rangers were amazing musicians and did a daily...More

The park itself was nice and had a few areas where you should stop and take it in. Nice statues and sculptures. The grass is well tended-to. However, the bridge is missing a few pieces of wood (fairly hazardous). Aside from that, it was a...More

This is a must for music lovers of any type. See where the american music style started. Rock, rap or many other types of music owe their history to jazz.

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
