Key Features of the French Quarter

It's a Historic Neighborhood

There is a reason that the French Quarter is so timeless. It was the first neighborhood established in New Orleans and has witnessed local and national history firsthand, from French and Spanish colonial rule to industrialization and modern developments. But history is preserved in the French Quarter through the architecture of existing buildings and homes.

Music, nightlife, and world-famous restaurants (such as Antoine's and Galatoire's) have kept this New Orleans neighborhood alive and thriving in the 21st century.
