Mississippi River Traffic

Great Walk and Watch

French Quarter Walk

       Having a second home in New Orleans wether you are in the French Quarter, Warehouse District, or Marigny the Mississippi River Walk is always a place to look and listen to the Mississippi River. The River is like a slowing moving highway of water moving through the town. Heading to the Gulf which is 3-4 hours away on a ship.

     Each ship, river boat or ferry always has a story behind it. One of the many sights worth seeing when you come to New Orleans.

Hi Eric... seeing a city from the perspective of a boat is always interesting. In NYC I loved to take the ferry around the island of Manhattan.

You can take boats to eat here and listen to music. Great walks along the river....

Great photos Eric!  I've been to New Orleans a number of times and enjoy being there every time.  I love watching the ships on the river as much as I love being down in the French Quarter - always plenty to see and enjoy!
