French Quarter Walking Tour

Thursday, May 9, 2019
7:00 am - 8:00 am CST

The French Quarter is the city’s historic heart, famous for its vibrant nightlife and colorful buildings with cast-iron balconies. Crowd-pleasing Bourbon Street features jazz clubs, Cajun eateries and raucous bars serving potent cocktails. Quieter streets lead to the French Market, with gourmet food and local crafts, and to Jackson Square where street performers entertain in front of soaring St. Louis Cathedral.

A must see for every visitor to New Orleans is a walking tour of the famous French Quarter. The original French and Spanish influence on this centuries old city are evidenced by beautiful and unique architecture. You’ll see famous landmarks such as The Pontalba buildings and The Saint Louis Cathedral, flanked by The Cabildo and Presbytère and Jackson Square with its old-world flavor and colorful art colony.

Enjoy viewing iron laced balconies, romantic patios, and quaint antique shops, providing the South’s finest selection of European and American antiques. The last stop of the walking tour will be a  breakfast of café au lait laced with chicory and a plate of sweet beignets from Café du Monde.

Registration for the Walking Tour - $35.
