The French Quarter, also know as the Vieux Carré, is the oldest and most famous neighborhood in New Orleans. The Quarter, as it is commonly known, runs from the banks of the Mississippi River to Rampart Street and between Canal Street and Esplanade Avenue. Much more than a historic district, the appeal of the French Quarter is easy to see.

It's walkable, picturesque, always busy, and filled with an extraordinary range of great restaurants, bars, nightclubs, courtyard cafés, art galleries, rummage shops and museums. A visitor can walk these blocks time and time again and always notice something new.

Here you'll find beautiful ironwork details on historic buildings branching out from St. Louis Cathedral. Barter for knick-knacks at the French Market or take a carriage ride around Jackson Square and see the colorful assortment of artwork, merchants, and street performers that give New Orleans its quirky character.

The famous Café du Monde has been serving their delicious beignets (a french-style doughnut), chicory coffee and cafe olé in French Quarter since the 19th century and they make a perfect treat any time of day.

Practical Info

The French Quarter is the place to be for any of the festivals held in New Orleans. From JazzFest to Mardi Gras parades, all of the action is packed into this relatively compact Quarter. Between art galleries, bars, music venues, and gift shops, where you can stock up on traditional New Orleans delicacies like pralines, Hurricane mix, and cajun hot sauces, the French Quarter really captures the unique New Orleans flavor as its cultural center.
