Exploring the French Quarter

Just when you thought you've seen all there is to see...

Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the French Quarter Festival was founded with the mission of attracting locals to the Vieux Carré.

There is more than just history in the French Quarter, although that’s pretty rich, too.
