     Attractions 


From the B&B, you can walk to all the French Quarter's attractions:

Meander down the avenue under a canopy of century old live oak trees
Enjoy the street performers, taro card readers, artists, mimes at
Jackson Square
Marvel at the oldest cathedral in the USA: St. Louis Cathedral (or go
to St. Mary's Church for a splendid chapel, few have the opportunity
to see)
Join the throngs of revelers for a taste of nightlife on Bourbon St.
Conjecture about who can afford the European antiques on Royal St.
Savor our wonderful food, everything from an oyster boat sandwich to
a seafood or roast beef po-boy, a muffuletta sandwich (Yep. That's
the world famous sandwich that everyone misspells and few can
pronounce - you buy it at Central Grocery), beignets, world class
cuisine
At your leisure, into the wee hours of the mourning, enjoy the sights
and sounds of New Orleans: dance clubs, bars, and music (from Zydeco
& Cajun music, R&B, Blues to Jazz)
Shop 'til you drop at the many fine shops in the French Quarter
Explore our many interesting (and some free) museums
Hop on the Riverfront streetcar line, then get on the free ferry
shuttle to the 2nd oldest neighborhood in New Orleans: Algiers Pointe
Browse through a plethora art in our numerous galleries
Bargain shop at the French Market and flea market/Bazaar
Float down the Mississippi River on one of the riverboat cruises
Explore Jax Brewery (shopping/dining complex)
Watch a sea horse give birth at the Aquarium of the Americas
Sip on chicory coffee and nibble on a beignet @ Cafe du Monde
Experience the pageantry of our parades during Mardi Gras, St.
Patrick's Day and other occasions (they say that anyone dropping a
hat on the ground is an excuse to have a parade in the French
Quarter. Even a funeral can be an excuse for a Jazz parade)
Shiver at the stories told during ghost and haunted history tours
Have your own Voodoo doll or gris-gris bag made at the spiritual
temple or put your "X" on Marie Laveau's grave while on a tour
Hop in a van for a plantation tour
Jump into the bus taking you to the swamp and bayou for a tour and
look at the wildlife


AND it's an EASY, quick WALK from the B&B to other nearby
attractions and sites (the banana lady walks from one end of the
French Quarter to the other in 15 minutes, MAX, but I'm not peeking
into courtyards, and looking through shop windows):
