3. Keep in mind
That you're not totally limited to the French Quarter. You can take the street car the entire length of St. Charles Avenue, so if there's anything you want to visit or see on or slightly off of St. Charles, you can use that. If you have the time, take the street car down to the end of St. Charles Avenue and have breakfast at Camellia Grill. That way, you get a tour of St. Charles Avenue and a great meal at the end of the ride. http://www.neworleansonline.com/neworleans/architecture... Get a shake at the Grill! You can also stop in at The Columns for a drink.

Also see my other post; it has a link to a pretty fair walking tour and some suggestions for places to go. If you're interested in art, take a stroll down Julia Street. Royal for antiques. Bourbon at night for sights. Go to the Avenue Pub and watch the sun rise; Please-U is almost directly across the street. The great thing about New Orleans is that the whole city is a special haunt. You'll have a great time wherever you are. http://www.frenchquarter.com/maps /

I see New Orleans worked its magic on you. It's a place that gets into your blood, and whispers in your ear when you leave. It is a wonderful place. I don't know if you do much history reading, but John Chase's book "Frenchmen Desire Goodchildren" is an interesting book that'll give you some interesting history that you may not have heard. I also highly, highly, highly recommend Chris Rose's book "1 Dead in the Attic." It'll make you laugh, cry and wrench your gut.
