New Orleans June 2005 (100 images). A day in New Orleans, LA. Most pictures here are from the French Quarter, New Orleans' historic section where Spanish, then French, then American influences prevailed. Bourbon Street is NOT for families, with dozens of bars and many strip clubs. It's a seedy but fascinating look into the belly of the American beast of bars, blues, and babes. The charming part of New Orleans lies in the back streets of the French Quarter, where you'll find dozens of quieter bars, excellent restaurants, and french Architectural styles found only in the part of the country. Recommended dining: Napoleon House, Acme Oysters.
