Jackson Square was originally known in the 18th century as "Place d'Armes," and later renamed in honor of the Battle of New Orleans hero Andrew Jackson. This famous landmark French Quarter Landmark is surrounded by historic buildings, including the St. Louis Cathedral and with the Mississippi River close by. Besides a pretty walk inside the gates, there's also all cool artists on the outside to watch, learn, and consider if it will fit into the existing home decor.

Jackson Square is park in the French Quarter. The park is spacious and verdant and has a beautiful view of the Saint Louis Cathedral. It's definitely worth a visit to take pictures.Recommended for:Nightlife Lovers

It's the geographic center of the French Quarter - a lovely park sited in front of St. Louis Cathedral, as well as many important historical buildings, museums, nice restaurants. There's an active art market on the street on three sides where locals sell their wares. Not to be missed!Recommended for:History Buffs

Wonderful square to review local artist work. Across the street from Cafe Du Monde (a must for the "new to New Orleans" folks). From the Square, walk down St. Peter in the afternoon to Pat O'Brien's and have a Hurricane in the Piano Bar (another NOLA experience that can't be replicated elsewhere)

Some of the best times I've had were here at Jackson Square. It's one of the my favorite places to slow down and enjoy life. Locals, tourists, artists and performers all gather here during the afternoon, creating a unique New Orleans experience.

It's a beautiful area. I've past by here several times whenever I was in the French Quarter area. It has this big beautiful castle like building (a church, I assume?). Well maintained garden area with pretty flowers, banana leaf trees, and shrubberies.
Great location for photos or just to relax. It's a tranquil getaway from the crazy scene of Bourbon Street. :)
