Treme' (pronounced Tre-May) sits adjacent to the French Quarter and is the oldest African-American neighborhood in the United States. Treme' is a vibrant area steeped in music and culture. Come explore this iconic gem and revel in New Orleans Jazz history with its roots in Congo square and Storyville, the birthplace of such Jazz greats as Alphonse Picou and Trombone shorty.

Treme' was originally settled by Free People of Color; often referred to as Creoles, whose unique experience helped shape the civil rights movement.

Treme' walking tour

Enjoyable and informative walking tour. Malika was an awesome tour guide and we opted to walk back with her instead of breaking off at the end of the tour. She continued to chat and inform us along the way, so delightful.
