The riverfront park is a must see when you visit New Orleans, there is a lot of history. Several outdoor art pieces. Dress for hot muggy weather if you go in the summertime.

Good for waterfront walks with space to stroll without being crowded. Nice breezes from the water and great views of the bridge and paddleboats on the Mississippi. There are statues and art along the greenspace, including a lovely monument to immigrants, which is worth checking...More

It is a nice place to watch the boats go by and to catch a breeze from the Louisiana heat. They also have the beautiful Monument to the Immigrant and Holocaust Memorial.

I didn't find it exciting. It wasn't overly clean either. Walked from Jackson square to the Hilton. Just a plan river walk.

We found ourselves drawn to the riverfront area of the quarter, and I think it's because it was so hot. This park and whole area is next to the Mississippi and can be one of the coolest places to be. Not to mention all the...More

This is a park right on the Mississippi River with many benches where you can sit and relax and watch the boats go up and down the river.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
