The oldest and busiest section of New Orleans, the French Quarter (or Vieux Carré as it was originally known) dates back to 1718. Although originally founded by the French, much of the current architecture is mainly Spanish influenced. Among newfound bars and nightclubs you can find old preserved churches and plaques dedicated to the old Spanish street names. As a recognized National Historical Landmark, this piece of the city is crawling with different cultures, characters and current happenings. Walk down the infamous Bourbon Street for a barrage of music, beers and bars, or take a stroll through picturesque Jackson Square and admire the local artists, musicians and fortune tellers.
