... live street bands, ate great traditional southern food while jazz bands played in the background,explored the parks, walked along the Mississippi River banks and really just soaked up the vibe and environment. Jackson park is at the heart of the French quarter. It is a beautiful park, with St. Louis cathedral as it's backdrop. This cathedral is gorgeous, and it too is surrounded by some fantastic old French architecture. Believe it or not, it was Sunday, and I went into ...

OAK ALLEY PLANTATION

TravelPod Member ReviewsMotel 6 New Orleans -Old Gentilly Rd
This place is so-so. Overall looks old. The room smells a bit funny and location is in a rougher part of the city. It''s OK if you're on a tight budget. In hindsight, New Orleans is probably one of those cities where it is worth going over your typical budget to stay in the French Quarter.
