All reviews street performers louis cathedral local artists palm readers tarot card readers beautiful square french quarter cafe du people watching horse drawn beignets great place to people watch carriage ride homeless people mississippi river for sale walk around
Very clean park across the street from Mississippi River. Great view of St. Louis cathedral. Dozens of local artists display their works along fence of park...great place to obtain a one-of-a-kind souvenir of New Orleans.
Filled with artists and street entertainers, Jackson Square is the heart of Quarter.
Unfortunate that so many homeless are everywhere; detracts from a visitor’s experience. The City needs to address helping these people to find suitable shelters.
Things to do in the square:
Get a carriage ride/tour around town
Browse local artwork from street vendors
Get a beignet at Cafe DuMonde and listen to fabulous street musicians while you wait
Visit the cathedral
Browse the shops surrounding the square

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

You should be able to but they don’t all do the same routes. We didn’t take a night time one, but on our walking tours we saw several carriages giving tours. We had Dave the purple man and we took his last tour at five pm.
