"Stroll down BOURBON ST. in the..." Jackson Square Tip by drolkar

Jackson Square, New Orleans: 11 reviews and 10 photos


Favorite thing: Stroll down <font color=purple>BOURBON ST.</font> in the evening ! There are so many different restaurants, bars, jazz & blues clubs, cafes, etc...... that it's hard to know where to begin. But nobody ever seems to hurry in New Orleans (unlike us 'serious' Bostonians!), so you can take your time. Another place to visit is <font color=green>JACKSON SQUARE</font>, formerly known as 'Place d'Armes' since it served as the parade ground for French and Spanish troops during colonial times. You can also sample cafe au lait and beignets at <font color=blue>CAFE DU MONDE</font>, which is just across the street from St. Louis Cathedral (shown here in photo). This is <b>the</b> place for people-watching, as well, and there are street performers galore!
