While in New Orleans, one of the locals told me that while Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest are the city’s biggest draws, the best time of year to visit the city is, in fact, Halloween. I can see why with all of the characters who abound in the city every day of the year! I loved this city and can see why so many visit it time and time again. Jackson Square is one of the most iconic spots in the city. We caught it early in the morning before tourists and locals began to descend on the spot and managed to get this peaceful shot of the square.
