The area of Jackson Square is not very large. You can see some tourists playing here. It is also a part of the scenic area. When I visit here, I pay attention to many people. American architecture and roads are also relatively wide.
The most famous Jackson Square and St. Louis Church in the city center, various grassroots artists on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter, take the old tram to the garden area and admire the mansions along the road
Established in 1721, Jackson Square was originally a colonial exercise field "Plaza de Armes". It was not changed to the current park until 1850. In 1856, the sculptor Clark Mills' General Jackson rode a horse. The statue stands on the square. This is the world’s first horse-riding statue. The two front hooves are hanging in the air. The park on the square is full of jazz band performers, street performers, improvised painters, and tourists. Very lively~
Jackson Square is located in the middle of the French Quarter. It is a beautiful small park. In the photos of New Orleans, this place is unique and can be recognized at a glance. On one side of the square is the St. Louis Cathedral, and there are some other famous museums. Relatively speaking, the entrance fee to the museum is relatively cheap! If you want to take a beautiful photo of the square with the cathedral as the focal point, I personally recommend walking through Decatur St and then climbing up the steps of Washington Artillery Park. The view above is beautiful exploded! Also worth noting is the Café du Monde (Café du Monde) adjacent to the square. Go and order a few Beignets (bagels), and then sit in the square and listen to music!
The free park is very close to the Mississippi River, and it is also convenient to take a bus. There is also a World Cafe next to it. There is a bronze statue of Andrew Jackson on the square. Next to it is the church city hall and prison, although New Orleans has experienced it. In two fires, these buildings were still restored. The square is also the center of art and culture. Street performances, paintings, and divination are all available, very unique in New Orleans.
