New Orleans River Front Park, Warehouse District and French Quarter meet on the Mississippi River.

    When you are looking for a New Orleans Condo you are also looking for a certain lifestyle that the area has.  The Mississippi River is why New Orleans is here.  New Orleans in recent years has been making the River more accessible to the public.  This is happening in the New Orleans Warehouse District and the French Quarter in particular. 

    The River Walk is between the Warehouse District and the New Orleans French Quarter.  The River Walk and Waldenberg Park creates a park and shopping area along the largest river in North America thru one of its most historic cities.  Waldenberg Park begins after the Aquarium of the Americas and provides green space and walking paths that leads to the French Quarter.  Its a excellent place to watch the river traffic and large ships pass by.

     The River Walk shopping center runs along the Mississippi River along with various places to eat and drink and to view the river.  River Walk starts where the Convention Center leaves off and ends at the Spanish Plaza.  Leaving the Spanish Plaza you can pass the New Orleans Ferry entrance. You can even take the free ferry to Algiers as long as you are walking.

  The Waldenberg Park stretches to the French Market from this point.  the Mississippi Rive is at one of its widest and deepest points at this point in the river.  Its the free views that will catch your eye.  Its very hot in the summer but then you can walk at night.

    Its a great walk or run if you are into jogging along the river.  Its easy to get away from the crowds but yet easy to get back to them when you are ready.

Along the way you can see Harrah’s Casino, the Aquarium of the America’s, the New Orleans Mississippi River Ferry, Canal Street, The Hilton Hotel, the International Trade Mart and much more.

French Quarter Condos

     The only condos with views of the Mississippi River is One River Place Condos that are on the River in the Warehouse District.  These were built as condos over twenty years ago.  Its next to the New Orleans Hilton at the end of the River Walk shopping area.  The condos start at the 500-550k levels with no views and up to 2 million for the top units.  This is where tow of our local sports stars live. Reggie Bush with the Saints and Chris Paul with the New Orleans Hornets.

     You can hop off at several places during your walk but go the whole way and you can rest when you get home.  The French Market pictured below may be your final destination. many of my clients are looking for second homes and as you can see there is plenty to do in these two areas of New Orleans.  You can either have a French Quarter or Warehouse District condo and leave your car parked for the weekend.

French Quarter Condos

    The Gov. Nicholls Wharf ends the River Walk Park at the end of the French Quarter.  You need to try the walk during the night or day.  You will get an entirely different experience.  There is a streetcar line for those who have had enough walking.
