This square in front of St. Louis Cathedral is continuously filled with artists displaying their works, performers of different sorts (musicians, magicians...) sadly a few homeless, tourists passing through, collective groups gathered for a cause and more. It is frequently loud and bustling with activity.

It is the heart of the French Quarter, with lots of restaurants, shops, street performers, access to the Moonwalk/Riverwalk and much more. This place never gets old.

This is a always must stop when in Nola do not miss walking around Jackson square. We had a lot of fun just sitting listening to music and walking around looking at art!!

Little shops all around the square as well.

Beautiful square! This is where you can get a horse drawn buggy for a tour, Cafe Du Monde is just across the street, the Tabasco store is here, local art by local artists, and everything else. We shop here every time we're in town. Don't miss!

Enjoyable area to stroll, view the art, people watch and in general enjoy the southern genteel feel of New Orleans. Very crowded at midday but a nice evening stroll.
