49+ things to do in the French Quarter

Visiting Faulkner House Books

If you are a history buff, pop into Faulkner House in Pirate's Alley. It is named after William Faulkner, who wrote his first while in that house. It is also one of the cutest small bookshops that I've found around the city.

Catch a Saints Game

Yellow Wavy Line

If you like sports but cannot swing tickets to a Saint's Game, the next best thing is watching the game while at the local watering hole.  There are many places to catch the game, but our favorite place is Coops Places or Turtle Bay.

Buy Gifts for your loved ones in cute, local shops

I love bringing Pralines home to people because they travel well and are cheaper in the French Quarter than at the Airport.

Stroll down Pirate's Alley

I typically tell people not to walk down Alleyways, but strolling down Pirate's Alley is one of my favorite things to do while exploring the French Quarter.

Sing to Dueling pianos

Yellow Wavy Line

The best time to get to the Dueling Piano Bar is right when it opens so you can grab a spot and start ordering your favorite songs. ​My favorite song to request is Proud Mary by Tina Turner.

Stroll Through Jackson Square

Jackson Square, nestled in the heart of the French Quarter of New Orleans, stands as an iconic historic landmark.
