An amazing place to see through the day and night, plenty of bars and restaurants in the area. The only thing was all the roadworks and construction going on when we visited.

You just have to visit the famous bourbon street, but it's very loud, commercial, busy, and touristy. If you're there just to party, it's always hopping. If you're looking for awesome music & the feel of what bourbon street used to be, go to frenchmens...More

Although still walkable, Bourbon Street is currently under construction for major plumbing repairs and impossible to access by car. Plan to walk or go to nearby Frenchmen Street for live jazz!

At night, this is a drinker's paradise. If you want jazz/music, go to Frenchman Street. View it during the day and enjoy the metalwork and architecture.

French Quarter
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
