Walk This Way: An Urban Hike in the Bywater

New Orleans is a city of distinct neighborhoods and the best way to explore is on foot.

This urban ramble starts in the architecturally intriguing Bywater, a residential haven of small, locally owned restaurants and businesses that thrum with New Orleans vitality. Wander along towards the artsy St. Claude Corridor, a gritty stretch flanking the Bywater and Marigny with a growing number of pubs, theaters and restaurants adding yet another option for New Orleans after dark. Check out our New Orleans Bywater neighborhood guide for all the must-visit locations in the area.
