A peacefully flowing river
Through the French Quarter and in particular the city of New Orleans in general, Mississippi River, the third biggest river in the world in terms of size and length, flows peacefully. We like the relative calm that it brings to the city that never seems to sleep, and also provides a pretty backdrop to New Orleans. You can admire the last steamer, and we particularly enjoyed the view from Decatur Street and Washington Artillery Park. Don't miss it.
