Faubourg Marigny is a wonderful eclectic historical neighborhood located only 10 blks from the French Quarter. This area is set up to be able to walk or ride a bike to many restaurants, grocery, and bars. It has a lovely European feel to it. Yoga studio is 2 blks away, fun vintage shops a few blks away......Frenchman St. is my favorite area to listen to live music- 8 blks away.

Other Activities: French Quarter shopping, cemetery tour, swamp tour, plantation tour
