A Glimpse into the French Quarter in New Orleans

We recently went to New Orleans for a few days. While my husband was in his conference, I strolled around the French Quarter taking in the sites and enjoying the atmosphere. We’ve been here 3 or 4 times before, but it’s still fun to see all the beautiful, old buildings…and, of course, eat some amazing food!

I am by no means an expert on New Orleans, but here are a few of the pictures I snapped while we were there.

Jackson Square is surrounded by beautiful old buildings, including the St.Louis Cathedral, which is breathtaking by day or night!

A few of the gorgeous buildings as we walked through the Quarter…

And no visit to the French Quarter is complete without beignets from Cafe Du Monde!!

Of course, music is everywhere…

We hopped onto the Algiers Ferry to take the short ride across the Mississippi River to Algiers Point – something we have always talked about doing and finally did this time! We took a short walk around the neighborhood and stopped into a little pub (which I forgot to take a picture of) before heading back across the river.

The spectacular view of the Quarter as we headed back from Algiers Point…

The textures to be found are simply amazing!

Oh, and did I mention that NOLA is 300 this year?

These are just a few of the sites around the French Quarter…there is so much more to this amazing city! We didn’t even get to the Garden District this time with the beautiful plantation style homes…

Happy 300 Years New Orleans!! I’m sure we’ll be back!

Thanks for stopping by,

Anita
