I recently passed through New Orleans a few weeks ago when visiting my cousin. We made our way through the French Quarter and the main square. Here are some pictures that I took while passing through. Mostly we just passed through Jackson Square to grab a bite to eat before the long road trip to Mississippi.
For those who don't know, Jackson Square is the oldest part of New Orleans. Built in 1721 it was known as the Place d' Armes after the famous park in Paris but after the battle of New Orleans in 1815 it was renamed Jackson Square after the U.S hero and future President, Andrew Jackson.
