Jackson Square, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review

  • Beautiful area. The culture, the music, the people its all so intoxicating. I absolutely love the Crescent city! If you haven't visited, you need to make plans to do so. You will fall in love with NOLA! I did.

  • So different (in a good way) from when I was a kid. The statue of Jackson is no longer covered in pigeon plop; in fact, there aren't any pigeons at all any more. The lawns and foliage are very well-maintained. A great place to sit on a bench or lie on the grass and watch life unfold in the Quarter.

  • Take a stroll through history, have a palm reading, view exquisite original artwork, and hear some of the best jazz music in the city. Amazing restaurants, shops, and museums, Jackson Square is an iconic part of our fabulous city. Cafe' Du Monde and the Mississippi River Moonwalk are right across the street, several tour groups meet here, and St Louis Cathedral is a must see. There is always something happening on the Square.

  • Great place to take a stroll or rest your feet from walking around in the French Quarter. It's also a very good landmark thanks to the St. Louis Cathedral that acts as a beacon seen from afar. A great place to hangout as there are plenty to see and do around the square. There is often a jazz band performing right in front of the cathedral. On the other side of the square are horse carriages for city tours, street artists and performers as well. It's one of the very bustling areas of French Quarter that is also family friendly.

  • Great for people watching and seeing the street Entertainers. Nice variety of artists displaying their work. Beautiful statue of Andrew Jackson. Go inside St. Louis Cathedral to see amazing art work and stained glass windows. Free.
