Skip the touristy bits and go to Galatoire's for some of the best old school New Orleans food in town. After dinner, stroll down to the Chris Owens club for the 9:00 show (rated PG)... while her right leg might not kick as high as her left, that does not change her status as a New Orleans treasure! Finish off with a nightcap at Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop.

Some folks come to New Orleans because of Bourbon Street - and some come in spite of it! It's wild, and charming, and full of entertainment. There are the crazy sexy shows - spirited bars - great restaurants - jazz clubs - almost "something for everyone" - but it can be crazy!

It's not that I just didn't like it.. I am just indifferent. I feel like a lot of people imagine Bourbon Street when they think of New Orleans. I know I did until I went. In the 4 months I was there I spent maybe a total of 2 hours there with friends. There is just so much more going on in the city and Bourbon was just way too touristy/drunk college party/ people falling in the streets. During the day it was nice.

Bourbon Street is one of the rowdiest streets in all of New Orleans. It can get wild and crazy, particularly as the night wears on. It's still a lively and entertaining place though, and you can't pass through the French Quarter without going through Bourbon Street.Recommended for:Nightlife Lovers

I recently completed a busy and satisfying business trip near Baton Rouge that finished up on a late Thursday afternoon. My plane back to Oakland wasn't leaving until Friday morning, and my hosts suggested that I drive down to New Orleans, and enjoy the evening there before heading out. Great Idea!
I've been to Bourbon Street before, and whenever I find myself in NOLA, I visit this street fair again, albeit briefly. This place reminds me a lot of some combination of Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco: touristy, ticky-tacky, and fake. There's actually a little bit of Folsom Street Fair here too, but with fewer plain sight surprises. What amused me the most was the fair number of old guy/sweet young thing combinations, which of course had me and a friend speculating on what was "the rest of the story".
We did stop at Pat O'Brien's nice patio for Hurricanes and people watching. But once we checked the Bourbon Street "Box" we were off to wander classier parts of the French Quarter. I recommend a courtyard dinner at Café Amelie on Royal Street and lingering in that section of town for a spell.
