Had a lot of fun. Tried different bars, jazz bars, piano bars. Loved that you could walk on the street with cocktails

This certainly was an eye opening once in a life time. It will be a personal decision to stay 5mins or 5hrs but well worth experiencing. We loved it, went on a Saturday night and it was very busy. Totally lost track of time so...More

Bourbon St is centrally located and is the heart and pulse of New Orleans. You can walk anywhere. Canal St and the street cars are very close. The beauty that you see from this old city is well worth visiting this special street!

We had a great time on Halloween night! People everywhere dressed in costumes. Loads of fun even if you don't drink. We walked up and down the streets taking in the music and people watching

This is my second visit to New Orleans's Bourbon Street. I still love it! The drinks are cheap and a wide variety. There are soo many people, great to people watch. Soo many street performers! It's great night life!

Been to NOLA many times, always entertaining and packed with amazing food and drink options. Construction throughout disrupted crowd flow, but it was easy enough to navigate. Not sure why families would choose to bring there kids here. Not really appropriate. Good prices on drinks,...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

I haven't been in March, but I have been in February. It was windy and cold, especially since it's surrounded by water.
