I love spending time in the New Orleans French Quarter. I love the distinctive architecture, the beauty of St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square, and, most of all, the music. The street musicians are so much fun to listen to, and on this trip, I also got a chance to go to Preservation Hall for my first live taste of Dixieland jazz. Preservation Hall is kind of old and musty and just plain awesome. We stayed for two sets and loved every minute of it.
