I have a friend coming down this weekend and she wants to walk through the French Quarter. On my own trips I used to walk from my Dardy’s house but she no longer lives close by. Where can we park that is cheap or atleast safe? We don’t mind having to walk a while.
Anywhere you pay to park will be safe. Cheap isn’t so easy and you will probably have to pay about $10 for “all day”. That is a LOT better than getting a ticket (min $20) or being towed (min $100).
I usually park in the Canal Place parking garage (300 block of Canal Street). There are several parking lots on Decatur Street between Jackson Square and Bienville Street. You can also use the lot on the river side of the flood wall behind Cafe du Monde (go to Saint Peter & Decatur and turn toward the river).
Hope you have a great time!
