Wish I was back on the bayou, Rollin with some Cajun Queen.

 

Calling all history buffs! Bayou St. John or Faubourg St. John is rich in history and gorgeous architecture. Even though it’s situated in the middle of New Orleans, this well-established neighborhood is quiet, so you enjoy city living, but are removed from the hustle and bustle. Fun fact: Bayou St. John is an actual bayou running through the city, it is one of the few natural waterways in the city.

Being on the water, it’s not uncommon to see paddleboarders, or kayakers taking advantage of all it has to offer. Not into the water? No problem, this neighborhood is also filled with folks riding bikes, running and walking. 

This New Orleans neighborhood has a mix of homeowners and renters and is appealing to almost everyone who likes urban living. Bayou St. John provides an easy stroll to bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and parks. Parking isn’t usually an issue, except for maybe Jazz Fest and Bayou Boogaloo. But, you won’t have to worry about parking then! You get the opportunity to walk to the festivals and pass a great time.

Home to some of the city’s oldest residences, Bayou St. John offers a variety of architectures including Victorian, Arts & Crafts, Creole styles. Sound like home to you?

 

Lagniappe: The Pitot home constructed in 1799 and one commonly referred to as “Spanish Custom House” built-in 1784 are the only two houses built in the 1700s that remain along Bayou St. John today.
