Beyond Fat Tuesday: A Guide to the Historic French Quarter
Welcome to the historic New Orleans French Quarter. Sitting on a crescent in the Mississippi River and affectionately known as the “Vieux Carré” to the locals, this rich, unique, and extraordinary blend of Spanish, French, Creole and American styles form the very heart of the city of New Orleans, providing an experience like no other. From the traditional jazz of New Orleans fame echoing across its streets, to the horse-drawn carriages gliding along its cobbled walkways, every step along New Orleans’ French Quarter feels like another step through time, to an age when French exploration and Antebellum sophistication were at their peaks. Join us as we visit one of America’s most vibrant artist colonies, New Orleans’ oldest neighborhood, and a place where artists, painters, and street performers make their living ensuring that each and every tourist (including you) feels that every day spent in New Orleans is its own vacation. If you think you’re ready, let’s get started!
