We were looking for quaint. There is not much there. There are a few business on the west end that have NewOrleans style fronts but nothing to write home about. We traveled thru here on our way from Pensacola Lighthouse.

By far this is the best small town in the South. The Classic French style (aka New Orleans) is beautiful. The restaurants are fantastic and the food is great.......There is SOMETHING for everyone and it is very KID FRIENDLY...

Downtown is so pretty with all the old buildings and architecture! There’s so much to see from restaurants to stores to historical buildings and museums. It’s a safe place and lit very well.

Such great things to do and what a clean downtown it is. We got to experience Gallery Night which reminded us of a smaller yet more composed version of the one we visited in Austin.

In the downtown, it is a safe area. The same precautions should be taken as any other City.
