Fortunately you don't have to watch old Michael Jackson videos to experience the Moonwalk. But you do need to travel to Jackson Square (no relation) in New Orleans to take a romantic stroll along the Mississippi River. From this walkway, you can watch river traffic coming into and going out of the second busiest port in the world! It was not named for the moon, but actually for former mayor of the Big Easy, "Moon Landrieu," who was responsible for building it during his administration. It is directly across the street from Jackson Square and only takes 15 to 20 minutes to walk, allowing for a stop here and there for sightseeing.
