the Old Downtown Gretna,
Gretna, Louisiana is located on the mighty Mississippi River on what the locals call the Westbank. The Old Downtown area of Gretna has been revived and the old buildings have been preserved. If you are in New Orleans, Gretna is actually to the east of New Orleans. It is a little confusing to tourist because they have to travel east over the Greater New Orleans Bridge to get to the City of Gretna. These pictures are of the Mississippi River, City of New Orleans and the Greater New Orleans Bridge. The historic Downtown Gretna is a revived area of restaurants and other businesses along the Mississippi River. Come on down and enjoy fine dining and the Farmers Market every Saturday morning.
