Nowhere is this city's spirit more evident than in the famed French Quarter, with its architectural mix of Spanish, French, Creole, and American styles. Also known as Vieux Carré - or the "Quarter" to locals - it sits on a bend of the Mississippi River on some of the highest grounds in New Orleans. Intimate and special, the city's oldest neighborhood has exerted a spell over writers and artists since the time of Mark Twain, Lafcadio Hearn, and John James Audubon. During your visit to New Orleans, you will begin to understand the city's unique ability to integrate history, absorb new influences, and fashion one-of-a-kind delights that continue to amaze not only much of the world, but also the inhabitants of New Orleans themselves.@@
