New Orleans: French Quarter

It's why we all go to New Orleans, and with good reason.  The architecture, colors and vibe of the place all mix up into a magical experience.  And I think that's all that really needs to be said.

Saint Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square

Windows in the Louisiana State Museum in Jackson Square

Just a few pretty buildings from around the French Quarter

Part of the band in Jackson Square, music is sort of ever-present there

Some of the great iron work

And, the always useful, hitching post

One tip; Grandma says Royal St. is the pretty street and that Bourbon St. is well, you know.  I'd have to agree, scantily clad women giving the come hither look to my grandpa at 7:30 p.m. made me want to leave that street A.S.A.P.
