  • I really enjoyed the area. It was so much to do, eat, and see in just one area that I stayed there for hours. I topped off my experience by riding the street car through uptown New Orleans for only $3 round trip. So, that’s my positive. The other side of that is that there are people who try get money from you when you don’t ask for their shoe sign service. This guy told me, “I bet you that I can tell you exactly where you got your shoes.” He started rhyming and saying he can tell me the exact place and city. Then He says you got your shoes on your feet right here in front of me. He unexpectedly and without my permission poured a gel on my shoe and started to clean my shoe. Side Note, the shoes look good now.
  • This is a fantastic place to visit during the sunset. You can enjoy a great view of the river and the Jackson Square with the Saint Louis Church as background. If you are lucky then some musician could be performing some instrument and you can enjoy the music and the landscape. Many tourists from everywhere. Don't forget to take great pictures.
