Just as the State Department warns Americans about dangerous places to travel, France is warning people about traveling to New Orleans.
According to a French government advisory, the city's tourist areas are well monitored and therefore remain generally unaffected by violent crime, but there are certain neighborhoods they recommend travelers should avoid.
In the French Quarter, the government advisory warns travelers to not go beyond northwestern Dauphine Street and northeast Ursulines Ave.
If travelers are in the Garden District, they say not to travel north of St. Charles Avenue or south of Magazine Street.
Similar advisories were also issued of 15 other American cities.
