Don’t get me wrong. We love New Orleans and really love the French Quarter. We visit frequently. But we stay away from Bourbon Street most of the time. To us this is the “kiddie zone”. If all you want to do is get hammered then this is the street for you. The only street in the Quarter lined with frozen daiquiri and cheap pizza slice shops tells the story. Get loaded quickly and cheaply, then line your innards with the cheapest junk food possible so you can drink more! There is some good music to be found if you can fight through the crowd of inebriated kiddies regurgitating their nights intake in the alleys. The people watching is spectacular! But I recommend you do this from one of the balconies overlooking Bourbon St. Better view and no chance of being run over by 21 year olds who cannot hold their liquor. Always a show! Always loud and boisterous. Always filled with annihilated 20 something’s looking for a place to publicly pass out, throw up or relieve themselves. Definitely a sight! The truth is we are glad Bourbon Street is what it is. It keeps the rest of the Quarter free of youthful undesirables. And the rest of the Quarter is tremendous for it.
