Missisippi River • Quiet • Family-friendly
A modest section of the larger Uptown area, West Riverside packs in some serious New Orleans charm. Locals walk their dogs past colorful Creole cottages and double-gallery houses, and neighborhood kids run free in small parks. Magazine Street, with its laid-back bars and coffee shops, is the social heart of the area. To the north, the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar takes you past Audubon Park and some of the city's grandest mansions.
