The partying never stops on Bourbon Street, the French Quarter's liveliest and wildest thoroughfare, where the rhythmic sounds of jazz, country western, Dixieland and sultry blues permeate the air. Brimming with life, you'll find everything from...more
We spent 2 week day nights traveling Bourbon Street either to or from a tour of some kind. We felt perfectly safe and there was a lot of police presence there. The music blasting out from every bar was quite the scene. People were dancing,...More

A lot of hype...100% a tourist destination. I think no one from NOLA goes there except to work or to try and hustle a couple of bucks off a tourist. Been there, done that, (but didn't buy the t-shirt to prove it...)
Bourbon Street is the place for all the bar hopping and people watching. It's a collection of every tourist attraction the city has to offer. Even in the heat of September travel, it is a busy place. I can only imagine peak season crowds. I...More
This was our first visit to Bourbon street. Loved it👍

I went down Bourbon Street a couple of times with my sister during our stay in New Orleans and it was interesting to say the least! We are both in our early 20s so we are no stranger to a night out, and Bourbon Street...More
During the day is fun to roam amongst the beautiful architecture and cool shops. At night it becomes party central. It is difficult to find jazz played in this area,it's mostly 80s rock and roll. Great place to people watch.
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
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
