Anyone who has been to New Orleans knows that it is a unique, remarkable, one-of-a-kind city. Carrollton is a part of New Orleans that is uptown from the French Quarter. It is on higher ground than the area of New Orleans that was damaged in the Katrina hurricane, so Carrollton went undamaged. Carrollton is at the end of the St. Charles streetcar line and the other end is Canal Street. Carrollton is home to Tulane University and Loyola University. Many University employees reside in Carrollton including professors, teachers and students. They patronize the many businesses and restaurants that are nearby because this is a mixed residential/commercial neighborhood. Carrollton's location is within walking distance to the French Quarter, if you are looking for an entertaining night out. Although Carrollton has many interesting restaurants and shops, the French Quarter is generally a more touristy area. Carrollton was incorporated in 1833 and still has much of the same Victorian residential architecture, which includes many beautiful flowering plants. Some of the historical sites in Carrollton are Old Carrollton City Hall and Palmer Park, which has a craft fair on the last Saturday of the month. This event is called the Arts Market of New Orleans and features live music also. Residents and tourists find this event to be great fun. Although, maybe not as exciting as the French Quarter, Carrollton still has much to offer and is definitely worth a visit on your next trip to New Orleans.
