Sight Seeing

French Quarter/ Garden DistrictFrench Quarter

The French Quarter is a melting pot of French, Spanish, Cajun and Creole influences that all add up to a very American neighborhood. Born as a French territory in 1718 and raised by the Spanish until the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the French Quarter today reflects and embraces the diversity of the U.S.A. Visit the french Quarter website to know What to see, what to do, how to enjoy, celebrate, understand and preserve this neighborhood in the heart of a grand old city


The Garden District of New Orleans is celebrated for its stately homes and lush greenery. When staying in the French Quarter, the St. Charles Streetcar is easily accessible for the scenic trip up the Avenue, and many other attractions such as the French Market, Bourbon Street, Harrah’s Casino and the Aquarium of the Americas are within easy walking distance. The Garden District area is mostly residential, and while we at FrenchQuarter.com are no doubt biased, we believe that the Quarter just has more to offer and is a more convenient place to stay while visiting New Orleans

New Orleans' Audubon Zoo and Aquarium AnimalsNew Orleans Aquarium

One of the country's top-ranked zoos, Audubon Zoo blends the exotic excitement of animals from around the globe with the serenity of its lush gardens. With innovative natural habitat exhibits and an animal collection ranging from the unique and extraordinary white alligators to the majestic Bengal Tigers, Audubon Zoo has become one of the Gulf South’s favorite family gathering spots.



New Orleans CemeteriesNew Orleans Cemeteries

The ground cemeteries of New Orleans are fascinating and eerily beautiful. Just steps from the French Quarter sits St. Louis Cemetery #1, where voodoo queen Marie Laveau rests alongside early founders of the city. Located on the edge of an unsavory neighborhood, it is not recommended to visit outside of a guided tour, many of which are available daily through any hotel front desk.
