Nestled in the heart of New Orleans, Bywater is a commercial and tourist hub of the city. Bywater was originally a plantation area; from the 1800s onwards, it began getting converted into a residential space. This neighborhood became home to immigrants from France, Spain, Germany, Ireland and Italy, which turned Bywater into a multicultural hub. The Mardi Gras parade by the Society of Saint Anne begins in Bywater, and is a popular event among locals and visitors.
