The French Quarter: A New Orleans Walking Tour

We crammed a lot into our four-day New Orleans trip, but a large chunk of our days was spent just walking up and down the streets of the French Quarter. Here is my photo diary of our explorations.

Since our hotel was on the other side of Canal Street from the French Quarter, every day we'd cross the trolley rails to start that day's adventure.

I had to snap a shot of the Bevolo Gas & Electric Lights shop as I walked by. The dark brick room looked so cool lit up with all these flames.

The French Quarter is all colorful doors and colorful flowers.

The flowers and greenery also spill over wrought iron fence balconies on every street.

As you walk through the streets, peer through some of the gates to French Quarter homes - you'll see a whole world of hidden courtyards, filled with greenery and fountains.

One of my favorite things about New Orleans is it's unique vibe. Things are just a bit supernatural...

I love all the little shops with eye-catching signs next to shuttered windows.

Restaurants line the streets, with much fan fare.
