Hundreds of vendors with every possible item to buy at very reasonable prices in French Market place.

The goal for the evening was a dinner combined with music. It was music all around in an excellent environment. We bought a ticket for a concert after the dinner. The dinner was average, but the concert with the 15 man big band was great.

Not as crowded as Bourbon Street with all the same amenities! Lots of fun and bars without the shoulder to shoulder crowds and it's only a few blocks away.

I visit Frenchmen Street regularly and it has become so busy over the last several years. But there are a few places you should make room for: Louisiana Music Factory, or the place you can take a musician home with you (not in a weird...More

Loved this part of New Orleans as we went for dinner and a drink with some Jazz. Great market of local artists across the road. All worthwhile

Enjoyed the craft fair outside the Spotted Cat which was open until 1. Much nicer music scene than Bourbon St. Very much enjoyed Spotted Cat.

The best Jazz club in the region (Snug Harbor). You will find a variety of other styles of music on Frenchmen Street as well. On many nights you will find a New Orleans Brass Band on the street. A street not as rowdy as Bourbon...More

We loved Frenchmen street. From what we’ve been told it’s more of a local hangout and much less trashy than Bourbon. We loved the live music, bars and the market that they had.

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining

We didn't travel with children, so I can't advise too much regarding family activities, but I would steer clear of Bourbon Street especially at night. It's very dirty and some of the shops may be inappropriate for kids... More

yes, they are. The music it varies from blues, to jazz, just enough to make you listen, and enough to make you dance.
