There is no culture in this area. It’s just for tourists to drink and eat.
How many locals are there who aren’t working?

Bourbon St is the pits, full of drunken frat boys and bachelorette parties.

New Orleans has tremendous food, drink and music that’s not hard to find with just a little effort. This however is just the Wallmart offering.

Enjoy the "energy", street musicians, and excellent food. However, be SURE to look up and all around at the beautiful buildings. Find out as much as you can about this rich history.

Dear readers,
The streets are very lively and interesting.
Everywhere restaurants and coffee shops.
The only negative side was we went by night and everywhere big garbage bags standing around and the streets were not clean.
Best wishes,
Petra

It’s an interesting place to visit. There are shops, food, and galleries. Bourbon St. at night is a little crazy, but other streets are fine. I highly suggest not driving through the area since the streets are narrow and pedestrians litter the street. There are homeless people on the street, but they are basically harmless. Just be aware of your surroundings at night.

I don't go in for the night scene on Bourbon Street anymore--except for accessing one of the restaurants off or near Bourbon Street. Royal Street and Jackson Square during the day are by far more fun. The street musicians are great on Royal in the early afternoon. Cafe du Monde is great any time of day.
