This "small town" district is nestled on the western edge of New Orleans. Food, art and music venues are all present.
This is a small commercial district embedded in a residential area. Many of the shop & business owners live in their buildings or within a couple blocks of their businesses. It is not a tourist trap; locals support and enjoy this cultural district.
The area is family and bike friendly. The St. Charles streetcar is perfect transportation for tourists to explore this area.
