Plenty of things to do and see on this street at all times of day. There was a lot of street construction going on that made it hard to walk the sidewalks. Great people watching zone.

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
