This is the place to be for pop-up street musicians to local artists displaying their wares, clipped to the fence. You can find tarot card readers, tour guides, and flea market finds.

There are tons of vendors around on Sunday. So many local artists. I wish I would of brought a bigger suitcase just so I could bring home some of the amazing artwork. The St Louis Cathedral is a must see. It’s gorgeous!

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

It’s $40 a person no reservation required just hop on and ride. Ours was an hour and included a visit to the cemetery and a great tour guide named Brandon. Well worth it!
