Neighbourhood: 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 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.

Nice - and free - little National Historic Park that can give you a nice orientation of New Orleans and the French Quarter before you explore. If possible, try to go there when they are putting on a free Jazz performance.

Walk and talk and there are many musical adventures to be had. They provide a self guided walking tour which is excellent.

Went with my family to the drum circle they held there, it was such a fun experience with great people! I definitely recommend this to people looking for unique, free activities in New Orleans.

Small building but some interesting exhibits. They have talks and demos throughout the day. Not sure when construction will be done on the primary location.

A small park with jazz themed sculptures, each one a wonderful tribute. Take a poicture of the map at the entrance so that you don't miss anything.

Love our National Park Service! Completed Junior Ranger booklets, got our passport stamps, and listened to a ranger talk. The Ranger talk was about the history of the second line parades. He also played drums and explained some of the rhythms. Very educational. This visitor's center is on Decatur in the French Quarter, so it is easy to get to staying near downtown. The site itself is small, but the programs they host are mighty. Make sure to check out their calendar for jazz music performances there and at the nearby Jazz Museum

Small but fun museum. Heard a park ranger do a great lecture about the history of jazz in New Orleans. And he played.

This is really not so much a park as it is a small visitor center. And while there is a gift shop, there are unfortunately no real exhibits that you might expect from an NPS visitor center.

However, the good news is that this "park" hosts a number of excellent free performances and ranger talks at this location and at the NOLA Jazz Museum down the street. Be sure to check the website to see what events are coming up.

Interesting, but would have been more interesting if there had been an attraction going on there at the time. Very nice staff.
