The atmosphere is wild pretty much all the time. Of course there are a lot of hustlers and homeless people as with any big city. I know it’s life but it makes me so sad. We stayed on Bourbon street and the party went on...More

The French quarter was like stepping back in history with all the preserved architecture and narrow streets. We were in a guided tour which really helped to understand all the past & present history of New Orleans
The French Quarter is a must see in NOLA. There is more to see than Bourbon Street. The street musicians and the art around Jackson Square is very enjoyable. Lots of unique shops and restaurants The New Orleans locals are very friendly.
We spent a large amount of time ambling through the streets and soaking up the atmosphere. The area has an amazing mix of traditional bars restaurant shops. The street entertainers added to what is very vibrant place and we experienced the jazz music in alot...More

Had a fantastic time in New Orleans but everyone we spoke to said try Bourbon Street once but then head to Frenchman’s Street. The bars are cooler and the music more genuine. You will definitely get the full flavour of New Orleans in this area!
French Quarter is where New Orleans comes to life - From stores to restaurants and from the arquitecture to the night life. Take your time to explore each corner of these streets. Bourbon St is one of the famous streets in French Quarter. Walk along...More
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 around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

Always Frenchmen street for great jazz. Many bars post their bands online monthly so check out DBA, Spotted Cat, Maison just to name a few. You walk into any bar grab a seat and stay for a set. Not your type of music move... More
Always Frenchmen street for great jazz. Many bars post their bands online monthly so check out DBA, Spotted Cat, Maison just to name a few. You walk into any bar grab a seat and stay for a set. Not your type of music move onto the next venue. Very few cover charge bands, so bring cash for drinks/set. French quarter try Starlight lounge, tuba skinny most Wednesdays, and Bourbon Orleans bar. During the day Royal Street for great street musicians, Doreen Ketchens.

With one day to visit, I would definitely come to the French Quarter. It is jammed full of all things New Orleans: great food, great music, and lots of history. Jackson Square is just steps from the French Market!
