“Come live life colorfully”

Although this historic French Quarter street has a bawdy reputation due to the burlesque clubs and all-night partying, come experience a whole other side of Bourbon Street steeped in history, folk lore and beauty that dates back to 1718 when New Orleans was founded by Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville. Also known as “Rue Bourbon,” this historic street sits at the heart of the French Quarter extending 13 blocks from Canal St. to Esplanade Avenue.

In one of the oldest cities in America, New Orleans invites you to visit Bourbon Street with all its history, tales and iconic buildings!

You absolutely have to come here when you're in New Orleans...it's just one of those things. I will say, though, that the tourists stumbling down the street with their souvenir cups full of booze at 9am sort of cheapened the scene. Also, be aware that there are some not-super-kid-friendly spots...some of my younger cousins got a full view of stripper butt while walking down the sidewalk. At like 1pm.

If it's your first trip to NoLa you've got to at least check out Bourbon Street. It's true that it's a touristy drunk-fest, but it's still a very cool piece of history. Expect loads of drunks, nudity, and some dodgy spots, so be smart when you're there. Not super kid friendly, for obvious reason.

Bourbon Street is great--especially while enjoying a Sazerac or an Absinthe Drip from the Old Absinthe House. Expect it to be crowed, and I mean perpetually crowded. Also, dress cool. While I was there in March, the weather was in the 60s, but because of how enclosed the street is, it felt much, much hotter. And though Bourbon Street is a must visit for those experiencing New Orleans for the first time, it is incredibly touristy. So after you take in your fill of the nightlife, check out streets like Frenchman--a less crowded, eclectic hotspot.

Alcohol, nudity, drinking, beads, and jazz music. That was my experience visiting Bourbon Street about 4 years ago. Super fun but also super strange at times. Definitely not the place to bring younger kids, but if your over 21 expect to have one hell of a night here. You may or may not see a few naked old people...

Loved Bourbon Street a lot. I'm not much for large crowds (cause let's be honest people are the worst) but this is something that has to be visited. I happened to visit on New Years Eve and spending it on Bourbon street was one of the most fun nights of my life.

You must come here if you're visiting New Orleans for the first time. It's something each tourist needs to experience. It's busier in the evening. Lots of music and entertainment for all, except kids. Probably a good idea to keep them away until they turn 18 or older. Adult themed content.

As a first timer- I had a wonderful time. You have to have a good buzz to get over the smell, but what a riot.

What an absolute dirty, sleazy, stinking shithole. The local Goverment that looks after Bourbon Street needs to go to Memphis & look at how they run Beale Street at night.
