3 Historic Fun Places To Go Outside The French Quarter

New Orleans is a party town on earth! The French Quarter is the heart of all the actions that range from the party Bourbon Street to historic Jackson Square. If you are looking for something that's outside of the French Quarter, here are my 3 picks:

1. Frenchmen Street
The Frenchmen Street is outside of French Quarter. For those that are not fond of walking, it takes about 50 minutes or so to reach there on foot from the French Quarter. Go there in the evening when the music is alive. It's a great place to enjoy the jazz music and good Southern food!

2. Garden District 
The Garden District is reachable via the public streetcar. You can check out several historic mansions that were built in the Southern United States. A few of those are owned by famous people such as John Goodman, Sandra Bullock, to name a few. Simply walk around this neighborhood and look at beautiful different style of those mansions. Historic enthusiasts will appreciate this Garden District.

3. Mardi Gras World
If Mardi Gras is too much for you because of all the crowds and crazy parties, then head over to the Mardi Gras World. You'll join the tour where you learn about the history of Mardi Gras and how the masks and floats that are used for the event are made. It's a good way to enjoy the spirit of Mardi Gras while visiting New Orleans during the time that is not Mardi Gras. For those that want to be picked up to get there, the Mardi Gras World provides complimentary shuttle as well.
