Bourbon street is one of the most famous streets in the world. When you say Bourbon street everyone knows you are talking about New Orleans. When you go to New Orleans you have to go to Bourbon street just to say you have been there. There is so much more to New Orleans than Bourbon St. I am planning on going back to NO in June (my first trip back since the June before Katrina). I am so excited and can not wait to go! 4 days in this great city and I will make many trips down dear ole Bourbon. We took a carriage ride last time we was in NO and it was awesome. We took one of the carriage rides that carried about 8 people (as it was cheaper that way) the driver was so informative about places to go and the history of the French Quarter. Don't let bad reviews about Bourbon St. keep you away it is just one street in New Orleans and I personally think it is an awesome street. Oh yeah and one more thing are the New Orleans Saints just not the sweethearts of America? That was the bestest superbowl eva. Go to Bourbon and have fun.
