Mid City and Bayou St John is truly an amazing place in the center of New Orleans soulful heart. It’s very friendly and has some of the best hidden gems in New Orleans.

It is home to loads of fun bars, restaurants, and art galleries all located amongst historic homes on oak lined streets.

First, we always recommend a trip to our City Park. It’s the largest in the nation and boasts a beautiful sculpture garden (free) you can tour on land or via paddle boat. There is a wonderful spot, Morning Call, to have beignets and cafe au lait on a bayou surrounded by huge oak trees dripping with Spanish moss.
