Take a walk on the Moon Walk

The New Orleans French Quarter Riverfront is known as the Moon Walk (named after former Mayor Moon Landreiu). It's a romantic and enchanting walk along the Mississippi River that decades ago replaced old river wharfs.

This evening stroll shot shows how busy the promenade can get. Have a look at this 360 degree view of the New Orleans landmark. Sites you will see on the video include the
The Moon Walk winds about a mile along the Mississippi River with the center of the promenade facing St. Louis Cathedral, the iconic Church that is the symbol of the French Quarter.

Ahhh... who doesn't like a nice riverwalk?

I'm thinking of heading down that way for Labor Day weekend. Do you think it will be packed?
