Things to do

Tourist attractions near French Quarter vacation rentals

The historic attractions in the vicinity of your French Quarter vacation rental are too numerous to name, but the Old U.S. Mint is a good start. This building is the only mint to have printed both U.S. and Confederate currency, and it now hosts exhibits on local history and culture. The Museum Cabildo is another can't-miss. Once the seat of New Orleans' Spanish colonial government, this graceful building displays works such as an 1839 self-portrait by Julien Hudson, a "free man of color" who worked as a professional artist in the city.


Things to do near French Quarter vacation homes

Tours of the French Quarter are as unique as the neighborhood itself. "Walking tour" sounds too pedestrian? Try a walking cocktail tour of some of New Orleans' famous bars and learn the origins of drinks like the Sazerac, Pimm's Cup, and Southern Comfort, all invented here. If you have kids in tow and need more flexible timing, the hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour will take you to museums, shops, and one of the city's picturesque and only slightly spooky St. Louis Cemeteries. For journeys farther afield (or a-bayou), sign up for a bayou airboat ride.


A humid climate as hot as the music scene

If the cold makes you quake, you won't have to worry about comfort in your French Quarter vacation rental. The humid, subtropical climate makes for hot summers and mild winters. In summer, temps can hit the 90s by midday, so pack your hat and breathable clothing - there's too much to do in the Quarter to let humidity slow you down. Winter lows can dip into the 40s. Be aware of the run up to Mardi Gras and the carnival itself in February. Prices and crowds climb as the festival approaches.

Natural features

Enjoy a riverfront stroll or a romp with local alligators

The French Quarter is known more for its parties than its parklands, but locals and visitors alike love strolling along the Mississippi riverfront, where you'll see ships, ferries, and shorebirds. For a more intense experience with Mother Nature, the marshes and bayous surrounding the Quarter have you covered. Take in the sight of aquatic flowers like purple water hyacinths and water lilies, and point your binoculars at the 340 bird species in the area. When marsh waters are high, visitors can spot snakes and alligators. Just remember to keep a safe distance!
