This is practically the epicenter of the FQ, as well it should be. Here, outside of St. Louis Cathedral, artists, tourists, locals, and everything else under the sun gather to browse, sell, buy, tell fortunes, and play music. You have to walk by while sipping your intoxicating concoction du jour and just look at all the amazing art created by our local artists. Your also likely to see dancing troupes, guitar players, frozen 'statue' people, and perhaps an impromptu parade of some sort. Go inside the St. Louis Cathedral and pray for the sins you are about to commit in such a beautiful and amazing city!

Vendors & musicians surround the perimeter of Jackson Sq and it's a nice place to stroll or sit on a park bench & relax. The Square is surrounded by sites to behold, history to learn of and cafes to have a bite or quench your thirst. If you're lucky, maybe you'll experience a wedding party having their second line from the Cathedral thru the streets of Nawlins led by an authentic brass band. There are lots of fortune tellers if you're a spiritual being; many locals & transients gather in this area to market their talents or crafts.

The fountain, Andrew Jackson's statue, and the cathedral offer nice photo stops. Go inside the cathedral it is beautiful.
