Everyone automatically thinks of rowdy Bourbon when it comes to New Orleans, but the real magic is Uptown. Here you will find affordable to pricey local boutiques on Magazine St. As well as culinary dishes that specialize in the unique authenic taste of New Orleans. And at the Audobon Zoo, they all asked for you! The zoo is a staple to the city and is a must-see attraction.

I take a walk in my neighborhood every evening to look at the amazing residential architecture and neighbors homes. It's such a quaint space in town, not to mention walking Magazine Street or Saint Charles for shops and bars!
The uptown area is a great place to live, work, and study. There are many shops and restaurants to enjoy, with also many quiet streets to live on. Love the uptown area!
