Jackson Square - a quick visit if you're with kids

Tips for Families

Jackson Square is something to see, whether it's for 10 minutes or 60. It's a pretty little park, but the real action is outside the gates - the shops, artists, musicians and horse and buggies. Plus, Cafe du Monde is right across the street, so you can always bribe the kids with beignets (French donuts, fluffy pieces of dough covered in powdered sugar) in exchange for an extra 15 minutes in the shops.

Tips for Families

It can be loud and a little sketchy, so probably best for older kids and/or before dark.

*If someone says "For a dollar I can tell you where you got your shoes...the city and state."  The correct answer is "On my feet in New Orleans, LA."  Now I just saved you a dollar! Heart of the French Quarter.  Artists, performers, music, food, telescopes to see the rings around Saturn, beautiful gardens and statues, people to watch...this was what I remembered most about New Orleans when I was a kid.  It seemed to capture the spirit of the city.   When I took my daughter there this summer it was her favorite place to be in all of NOLA.  We could have set there for hours.   She paid the performers.  She bought a real piece of art for her room.  She took photos of everything.  She saw the rings around Saturn...
