Once the main drag of New Orleans, Bourbon Street stretches across the length of the French Quarter. Known as the epicenter of the party,
Bourbon Street has been entertaining New Orleans guests and residents since the early 1700s with its wealth of entertainment, shopping, restaurants, and so much more.
Visitors flock to Upper Bourbon Street, especially during celebrations such as Mardi Gras, for famous taverns, bars and watering holes.
Spend time at some legendary Bourbon Street hangouts such as the Cat's Meow, Razzoo and Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop.
A staple of the French Quarter, the French Market is a lively gathering of goods and groceries nearly two centuries old.
Neighboring the Louisiana State Museum's Old U.S. Mint, the market is a stopping point along the Louisiana African American Heritage Trail.
Vistiors browse through hundreds of vendor booths selling everything from souvenirs of New Orleans to fresh produce and fashion.
Stop by the New Orleans Visitor Center, the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park, or stop in for coffee and Beignets at Café du Monde – all are minutes from the Market.

Looking for a thrill during your trip to New Orleans? The Haunted History Tours of the French Quarter is your answer. Choose from ghost tours, vampire tours, and voodoo tours set in the after hours of the Vieux Carré. Tours in the Quarter meet at Rev. Zombie's Voodoo Shop.
Test your nerves by touring the dark streets of New Orleans' oldest neighborhood, and hear of the spirits of the Big Easy. Haunted History Tours stem outside of the Quarter as well, so check out Haunted Garden District Tours and Cemetery History Tours.
Stop in for lunch or dinner at Muriel's in Jackson Square – with the ideal contemporary creole menu for a taste of authentic New Orleans.
The square is truly a staple of New Orleans culture, featuring history, cuisine, music, and more around every corner.
