Boats roll along as buskers perform or sell their wares on the "Moon Walk," a boardwalk named for former mayor Moon Landrieu, that stretches from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue. At one end, the French Market provides the flavor of local commerce. Riverfront Park, just above Canal Street, yields views of the Crescent City Bridge. For a great shot of the city skyline, hop on a steamboat, such as the Steamboat Natchez (www.steamboatnatchez.com; 800-233-2628). Its motion will rule out the long exposure necessary at twilight, so take a two-hour daytime cruise.
