Highlights of New Orleans’s French Quarter
- Let the good times roll: that's the town’s unofficial Cajun creed (“Laissez les bons temp rouler!"). Priorities here are inclined toward enjoying life and relishing the moment at hand.
- Check your attitude at the door: "Stop thinking of New Orleans as the worst-organized city in the United States," writes author Dan Baum in Nine Lives, his post-Katrina book. "Start thinking of it as the best-organized city in the Caribbean."
- Feast on beignets under heaping piles of powdered sugar at the legendary Café Du Monde, near the towering St. Louis Cathedral
- Neon lights on Bourbon Street advertise frozen cocktails and gaudy strip clubs.
- More New Orleans nightlife awaits on the slightly less touristy Frenchmen Street, just north of the Quarter.
- Jazz fills the air at the Spotted Cat Music Club, where a sign warns that both drinks and drunks are barred from the piano—but like all rules in New Orleans, it's one that's bound to get bent from time to time.
