Not that I need any more encouragement but the French Quarter gets a perfect 100 out of 100 score as a walkable city. David and I discovered long ago that a car is totally unnecessary and actually a bit of a hassle in the French Quarter. Once in awhile we’ll catch a cab, particularly late at night if our feet are hurting but most of the time we walk. It’s a good thing, too. If it weren’t for all the walking we do I can’t imagine how much weight we’d gain while we are there.
