Create an itinerary including Jackson Square
Be a part of New Orleans's rich history and cultural heritage with a visit to Jackson Square. One of the city's most iconic landmarks in the heart of the French Quarter, the park serves as the main hub for cultural and leisure activities. Stroll past the manicured lawns and 18th-century architecture, admiring the eccentric mix of street artwork and handmade crafts on display by local artists. Before or afterward, stop for a beignet (French-style doughnuts) at Cafe Du Monde, sitting outside to enjoy local musicians and street performers in the park. If members of your group want to split up, you can meet back at the statue of Andrew Jackson in the center of the park. Add Jackson Square and other attractions to your New Orleans trip itinerary using our New Orleans tour planner.

  • Very nice & clean area! So much beauty in just the scenery & landscaping. Definitely a beautiful spot for touristy type photos. The atmosphere is upbeat and friendly! If you're in the area, DEFINITELY walk through, it will leave you feeling refreshed & renewed!
  • Very beautiful place, the lane is so beautiful. Tourist spot and nicely maintained. Must go and visit this particular spot, picturesque and has so many eateries all around the place. It is the most fun place to be in New Orleans. Must visit in the evening time, french quarter is walkable and is so amazing to enjoy. For bright pictures and photography visit in morning hours on weekdays, not many people around and good time for photoshoot.
