French influence is noticeable on most buildings' and landmarks' architecture around the French Quarters' area. Take the Opera House; if you've been to the actual Opera House in Paris, you'll notice a resemblance.

We took a cyclo ("motorcycle) ride to the Opera House from the Old Quarters. Felt like I was in a time travel capsule enjoying my ride that transported me from the local cultures and charms at the Old Quarters, to a newer and modern French Quarters' area with a very French outlook.
