  • This is definitely the right place to go look for that elusive New Orleans souvenir. There are plenty of vendors with homemade goods as well as other things to choose from.  more »
  • The music was good. The variety of small vendors did not disappoint. The prices for some things were high so shop with a watchful eye.  more »
  • Very interesting market to meet, we went for a walk on Saturday morning with the family. For all tastes and pockets, and has everything from popcorn, ice cream, local beer, crepe and etc the Shish kebab of alligator. I found the beautiful local crafts.

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
