French Quarter

My favorite area in New Orleans is the French Quarter. I am not alone in this. We were lucky enough to stay in an apartment with a friend right above Royal Street, one street over from the famous Bourbon Street. We spent two days just wandering around enjoying the ambiance remarking how European the area felt.

Have to have beignets when here.

Many a wedding party come marching down the streets led by a jazz band.

Couldn’t get a full view of the bride.

  1. That little beignet place is great. It’s right next to the police station on Royal, right? Fanciest police station building I’ve ever seen.

    I lived over on Decatur, across from the little park near the French Market, for several months in 2013/2014. It was a really extraordinary experience.

    I didn’t think I’d like it, because visiting the French Quarter can be such a pain…the traffic going in and out, and the parking. When you are staying inside of it, though, that is pretty wonderful. At least, as long as you don’t need a car. Parking is really atrocious.

    But that is one of the most unique places in the country, to live and to visit. Except in the summer. Well, you’re from Texas, so you’d know what that would be like. Y’all chose a good time to go, glad it all went well.
