La Belle Esplanade is located on Esplanade Avenue in Treme, close to nationally known restaurants and museums. A picturesque stroll in one direction leads to the action in the French Quarter and Faubourg Marigny. In the other direction is photogenic Bayou St. John and City Park. It's about a 30 minute walk to either end of our street, but take your time. There is plenty to see. The 2200 block of Esplanade Avenue is right in the middle between the tourist zone and the places locals enjoy.
An ancient part of the back of town, our area is steeped in history and legend. It is full of surprises, all of them strangely wonderful. You'll get a good night's sleep in peacefully eccentric surroundings. This is a part of town where people live as well as party. As I write this, a marching band is going past our house. There is nowhere else like New Orleans.
