Jackson Square is a great place to pick up some local art, as well. Artists must have permits to sell their work in the square, and only 200 are issued annually, meaning you’ll be browsing through pieces by legitimate and talented artists. Across Chartres Street sits the Cabildo, the 18th-century building where the Louisiana Purchase was signed.

I enjoyed being on Jackson Square. I even got to see a wedding parade which was an interesting experience. The road is lines with artists and shops. It's a great in between tours/attractions.
