The highest natural spot in New Orleans is Monkey Hill in Audubon Zoo, but for for fresh air and quality views, stroll the Moon Walk, named for former mayor Moon Landrieu, to the best view of the French Quarter's Jackson Square seen from Washington Artillery Park. The area on the river side of Decatur Street is one of the most popular locations for photographs of both the Mississippi River and, at its opposite, the St. Louis Cathedral at the heart of Jackson Square.

For alternate spectacular views, don't miss the Hilton Riverfront Hotel, Hotel Monteleone and the Forbes Four Star Hotel Windsor Court for romantic Mississippi River vistas from your own room.
