I love going to Jackson Square in the morning, when the artists, tarot readers, and musicians are just arriving setting up their spots. I sit and enjoy the view of the church, watching the rainbows made by the sprinklers. I love visiting lots of places on the Square: Violets II (accessories), Shushan's (hats), Little Toy Shop (gifts), Muriel's (great dining), La Madeliene (breakfast), Tarot readers (I like Sharon & Professor Purple), Musicians (Rosyln, Grampa & Sonny, Steamboat Willie), artists (Claude or Sarah Stiehl for portraits; Thorin for charactures), Museums (The Cabildo rocks, skip the Presbytere).
I met my husband on Jackson Square.
Pros: free entertainment, great shopping, breath-taking sights
