French Quarter is so much more than Bourbon St. and Mardi Gras! 2/6/2008

I never thought I'd visit New Orleans, but ended up going for a business trip. Part of the trip included a terrific walking tour of the French Quarter (Historic New Orleans Tours). The architecture, history, food and music exceeded my expectations. I happened to be there the week before Fat Tuesday, during Mardi Gras. It was actually quite fun, not nearly as crazy as I anticipated. The blues band at Sing Sing is fantastic! I learned so much about this city and the mark it has made on American history. Even ""post-Katrina"" it is a place worth visiting (especially now!). In fact, I can't wait to go back... maybe for the Jazz Festival. Put New Orleans and the French Quarter on your places to visit. Pros: History, Architecture, Food Cons: Don't walk alone at night more

great place to go and enjoy the flare and culture of new orleans. i stayed 4 days and loved every minute of it. i must say my favorite was trying new foods at different restaurants and just enjoying the atmosphere. there is so much more to see besides bourbon street (which i did enjoy a few times myself) and i just love the uniqueness of the city! more

it's not the humidity, it's the humanity 8/27/2003

I live in uptown, and love taking visitors to the French Quarter. It gives me a chance to discover it all over again. No matter how many times I go I always find something new. While it is true that too many tourists can be annoying (why do they call it tourist season if you can't shoot them), it is the kaleidoscope of people that add the extra spice to the Quarter. I encourage people to explore beyond the Quarter. Take the trolley down St. Charles Ave., one of the most beautiful streets in the world. Everytime I drive down it I fall in love with the city all over again. Pros: Beauty, debauchery Cons: tourist, debauchery, parking more

its more than just Bourbon! 11/1/2002

The French Quarter is indeed a wonderful place,but not everyone will enjoy all of its aspects. Everyone knows about Bourbon Street and the wild party atmosphere that runs amok any night of the week. There's also the beautiful St. Louis Cathedral and Jackson Square, or the antique shops you can lose yourself in on Royal St. The French Market is not to be missed! Remember, Bourbon St. is only one small part of the Quarter and may not appeal to everyone. Pros: history, good food, local color Cons: parking, meter maids more

A must for everyone! 8/13/2002

The French Quarter is full of adventure and intrigue for people of all ages! From the very young to those in their golden years, there is something to entertain everyone. Museums, restaurants, artists, flea markets, coffee shops, ice cream, shops that will delight and cater to every collection, interest and desire! Entertainment galore from street singers, comedians, balloon artists, jugglers to the extremely delightful gay district with flaunting drag queens. If you are hungry, thirsty, seeking entertainment or just a people watcher...this is the place for you! more

Sights to See 7/25/2002

The French Quarter has something for those of all ages to see. From the street entertainers to the shops and restaurants located in the Quarter. You can stay in the Quarter for hours and not see everything. So much fun! Pros: Inexpensive, Good parking, Fun Cons: Crowded more

I am a local 5/22/2002

I hate to hear when visitors to the French Quarter are made to feel unwelcomed by residents, because we know fun and like to share it. That said, it's sometimes hard to embrace people coming in from out of town and using our city as a toilet. I understand visitors are often as blameless as residents -- many area businesses cater to and encourage excess. But locals know besides Napalm-strength drinks and nudity, the Quarter has history and local flavor and neighborhood color. And it IS a neighborhood; people live there and send their kids to school there and upkeep their property like home-owners/rentors in neighborhoods everywhere. No, youre not in Kansas anymore -- youre in a wonderful, unique place. Try to appreciate instead of degrading it (or yourself or us). more
