Dont visit this street if you are easily offended. I knew it would be wild with lots of circus like characters walking around so none of the foolery surprised me. I couldn't help but notice the stinky smell, it smelled like rotting trash or food, not urine (like some have described). I've been to Vegas many times and in my opinion I think Bourbon street is wilder and more risqué. There are so many strip clubs! This must be a man's playground ( I suppose some women might like this too). I enjoyed people watching but I could also do without it. I didn't go into any of the bars or clubs but there seem to be a bar for every musical taste - jazz, oldies, country, hip hop, you name it. If you like to party, drink, enjoy loud music and watching street performers, you will love Bourbon street. This goes without saying- do not bring your children! Don't let your teenagers go here alone either- they'll probably love it and want to go back every night, I know mine would.
