The historic French Quarter, also known as Vieux Carré (Old Square), is the oldest neighborhood in the city of New Orleans. The most well-known of the French Quarter streets, Bourbon Street (also known as Rue Bourbon), is part of the city's lively entertainment district.
Vieux Carré offers the most sought-after historical architecture of New Orleans, with wrought-iron lace balconies and quaint, serene courtyards. The elaborately decorated ironwork balconies are one of the French Quarter’s most prominent and memorable features. Visitors photograph them, artists paint them and hotels, clubs and venues promote the French Quarter balcony as an ideal perch to view passing parades.
No existing place in New Orleans preserves more of The Big Easy's magical and haunting flavor than its wrought-iron lace balconies and secluded, tropical courtyards. The perfect place for sipping a cool libation on a balmy New Orleans evening!
