New Orleans Attractions & Sightseeing

See the Best of the Area

French Quarter
The French Quarter, also known as Vieux Carré - or the “Quarter” to locals, sits on a crescent in the Mississippi River on some of the highest ground in New Orleans. Not only is this is city’s cultural hub, but is a community where residents take time to reminisce with neighbors about times gone by and to welcome visitors in the streets. Visitors can obtain an inside look at Vieux Carre’s architectural gems by going on home tours offered throughout the year. Around the bend of every corner you may find a eclectic shopping destination, delicious restaurant, or history museum. Browse the treasure trove at the French Market, shade yourself in Jackson Square, and munch on a muffellata at Jackson Grocery. More info
