Owner description: The partying never stops on Bourbon Street, the French Quarter's liveliest and wildest thoroughfare, where the rhythmic sounds of jazz, country western, Dixieland and sultry blues permeate the air. Brimming with life, you'll find everything from shopping to music to Cajun food to nightclubs.

Maybe it’s me, but I don’t care for this whole scene. Too many freaks and drunks and petty con men for my tastes. Good places to eat, but you can find good food lots of places.

Ok so bourbon st is smelly and nasty you have all of the porn and adult stuff here so if your looking for some adult entertainment this is your place. I could not handle the smells of vomit, urine and crap. It’s an entertaining street as everyone is drunk but there are people with dirty rags that try to spray your shoes to wash them and order you pay them money. Hit this street up during the day your less likely to be mugged or scammed out of money.

Debauchery pretty much sums it up. On our first night here we stepped out the front door of our hotel on bourbon street define two large black women brawling in the middle of the street. So awesome! This is the place were day drinking is a requirement and when the sun goes down the real show begins. Be careful though because when you stray from Bourbon Street it gets pretty dangerous at night and and some suspicious characters can be found lurking.

Easter trip to New Orleans for the first time and of course a trip to Bourbon street is a must. It has to be said that the area is now more about cheap bars and money making than its historical interest. If you know the UK Blackpool comes to mind, however I found a Jazz bar and enjoyed a couple of hours of live Jazz which made the visit worthwhile.

During our visit Bourbon street was tore up. You were forced onto very narrow crowded sidewalks because the road was being repaired (?).
Definitely a place to people watch as you walk. Bourbon street obviously is an " anything goes" area. With that being said, we never felt unsafe. There was visible security during this peak season/week.
