The French Quarter, also known as Vieux Carré – or the “Quarter” to local is intimate and unique. Take a horse and carriage through the area and see the elcelctic shops and the architechtural gems. Bourbon Street is steeped in history and extends 13 blocks from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue. At night it is known for its all night partying.
Canal Street is the traditional starting point for any tour of New Orleans. Head off in any direction from this downtown hub – including west toward the Mississippi River – and you are bound to see or find something of scenic or historic interest.
The Warehouse District which was once a 19th century storeage district for coffee and grain is known today as the New Orleans Arts District filled with amazing art galleries, fine restaurants, and world-class museums.
