Pros
Iconic pictures
Close to some tasty food
Close to downtown and the CBD

Cons
Can be difficult to navigate without be harassed for money by street people.

My wife and I love to stroll the square when we are in NOLA. There is a little more space than many streets in the French Quarter. You can go to Cafe Dumonde, or wander to a few galleries, or simply look at the street art available. Plus if you want the quintessential New Orleans Pics, this is the place. Large Trees, Wrought Iron Balconies, and Cobble Stone Streets.

We walked through while exploring.

Beautiful area, very historic and well kept. Buildings and gardens are amazing.

Shops, food and all on the streets that surround President Jackson's statue.

You have - all in one place: St. Louis Cathedral, Andrew Jackson statue, horse drawn carriages, artist selling their paintings and in 2018 the NOLA 300 signs celebration of the founding of the city. Plus it is free to wander & enjoy!

From street performs and street artists to history and green space this place has it all. If you are going to New Orleans you need to stop in Jackson's Square
