The French Quarter: New Orleans oldest neighborhood. Established in 1718, the French Quarter, is perhaps America’s oldest neighborhood. It should been at the top of everyone that’s visiting New Orleans list. The French Quarter is a place of constant change, settled by the French, ruled by the Spanish, occupied by the Americans, and the second-largest port of entry for Italian immigrants in the 19th century. In the 20th century, it became a haven for artists, musicians, and bohemians. Then one of the hottest tourist destinations in the world. Often looking down on for being so “touristy” The French Quarter might be the oldest neighborhood in the United States. It has been continually occupied since the cities founding in 1718 and it features countless surviving examples of intact 19th century architecture. After our Free French Quarter tour it will become apparent why New Orleans is Americas’ Most Interesting City.
