Wild horses couldn’t drag me away.

 

While the Fairgrounds name might indicate that it’s all about the ponies, you would be so wrong. Being so close to Bayou St. John, you will find a fair amount of their residents on bicycles. Whether they are headed to a picnic on the banks of the bayou, brunch, or to watch exotic animal races – the Fairgrounds proves to be an area full of life while maintaining its residential charm. 

While the two weeks during Jazz Fest, all the tourists might annoy others – Fairgrounds folks sell their driveway space and enjoy the music from their front yard. 

Shotgun homes and Arts & Crafts cottages dominate the architectural styles of this New Orleans neighborhood. 

 

Lagniappe: The Fairgrounds are the third oldest horse racing track in America. The site was also used as a Civil War campground by both sides, at different times.
