We stayed right on the river and enjoyed watching the boats go by.
I enjoyed the French Quarter's age and architecture. The culture and style is very European. None of the French Quarter was flooded during Hurricane Katrina. It is the oldest part of town and is located at the highest area bordering the river.
One of the government buildings is the Cabildo, where the Louisiana Purchase was signed.
The St. Louis Cathedral is the oldest cathedral in North America.
