A ten minute stroll from Riverside to French Quarter (in 4K)

I’m often asked how far it is between Port Orleans Riverside and Port Orleans French Quarter — by which I think most people mean how long will it take to walk from Riverside to get some delicious beignets at the Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory food court!

My usual answer is about ten minutes, but I thought it’d be nice to be able to offer up some more definitive evidence, so please join me for a leisurely stroll alongside the Sassagoula River between these two beautiful resorts in gorgeous 4K resolution video.

This is the last half-hour of their set from 9th August 2016, presented as a 360-degree 4K video. So put on your VR headsets and enjoy sitting in the front row for the show.

Test Files for a new HD Walking Tour

On a recent trip I took a whole load of 1080p HD videos at both Riverside and French Quarter. I’m planning to put HD edits up on YouTube versions via the channel portorleans.org at some point, but in the meantime I’ve created a couple of quick sample clips to be going along with. Please let me know via our Discussion Forums if you have any problems - thanks!
