    One of the most famous streets in the world! The nightlife - music - food - and overall experience is unmatched anywhere else on earth. A must for every traveler to New Orleans. When someone says Bourbon Street - you can say - "I've been there!"

    Another NOLA spot to check out and within walking distance from almost anything in the French Quarter. After lunch, we headed here to check out a creamy pralines distributor for the wedding. This is an open air market and open daily. It's a permanent fixture so you can come any day and time you like. It's just endless with lots ...

    This is a great venue to catch a show! The food is OK, there are many other better options for a meal. But for a drink and a concert, it is a great place to visit.

    Audubon Aquarium

    0.51 mi from Jackson Square
    27 reviews

    From the coral reef tunnel to the Gulf of Mexico exhibit and the hundreds of fish in those enclosures, that would be enough for some aquariums. But here you will also find birds, including penguins, otters and even an albino alligator. The best part is that the educational stuff is not overbearing. Worth visiting again and again.

    D.B.A. is a great venue to catch classic New Orlean's acts. It's beyond the craziness of Bourbon Street, and you're likely to find it packed with locals.

    This is where the adults go to hang out. Bourbon St was fun but if you want to not be around all of the tourist you go here. You may catch a Marsalis family member playing at one of the many jazz clubs. There are great restaurants and music up and down the street. My wife and I went there ...

    An open air gallery and market next to the Spotted Cat Music Club on Frenchmen Street is small but offers a good collection of jewelry, paintings, photography and even handmade fragrances from local artists. Nicely lit and a good stroll during a music break.

    Large venue for Frenchmen St standards. Downstairs has a large bar and a stage that regularly hosts some of the local favorite jazz and blues acts. Nice acoustics if live music is your draw, else dancing and DJs await in the upstairs space.
