Oh Bourbon Street. I really don't think there's anything like Bourbon Street. I'm not a person who's big on getting trashed in public, so I don't really go for that full Bourbon St. Experience. Still, I love watching trainwrecks. It's also just generally a fun street and a must-see if you're in New Orleans.
Also wandered around the street on New Years Eve and it was absolutely insane. I imagine it's even crazier during Mardi Gras.

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.

Boubon Street is a great tourist spot. Having been to State Street in Madison, Beale Street in Memphis, 6th Street in Austin, McKinney Ave in Dallas, etc... Bourbon does a good job of being both entertaining and touristy. While I don't recommend it for everyone, it is a blast to visit every now and then. Even during the day, a fun event is a back-alley pub crawl.
The history and beauty on Bourbon Street is hard to overlook.Recommended for:History Buffs

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.
