EXCURSION DOWNRIVER - FRENCH QUARTER, LIVE OAKS & HIPSTERS
French Quarter & Downriver neighborhoods: French Quarter, Esplanade Ride, City Park & Marigny/Bywater
3.5 hours $450 up to six people
We begin in the picturesque French Quarter. We'll discuss geography, architecture and the folks that made this fabled city in the swamp. Next we’ll head downriver to the Marigny & Bywater neighborhoods - dubbed the “hippest” parts of the city, this area is currently experiencing a cultural renaissance. We’ll proceed along Esplanade Ridge, lined with historic homes, toward Bayou St. John & City Park. Inside the park we’ll take time to stroll amongst the majestic live oaks and sample some beignets & café au lait. These are the best beignets in the city - trust us!
We'll have transportation, but some walking, in areas like the Jackson Square & City Park is ideal. This excursion, features the highlights of the French Quarter and downriver neighborhoods.
