Bourbon Street, New Orleans, Louisiana

See the New Orleans Guide ›
New Orleans , Louisiana's insider take:

Most locals don't spend a lot of time here, but just about every first-time visitor gets drawn into the neon-lit vortex of Bourbon Street. Whether you're looking to relive college-day glories around the piano bar at Pat O'Brien's (718 St. Peter St.; 504-525-4823; or you're lured in by the bands at the Famous Door (339 Bourbon St.; 504-598-4334), this after-dark pedestrian zone provides all the frozen hooch and sensory overload that the law allows (and toting alcohol on the street is legal). If you go, know one thing: Beads outside of Mardi Gras season are best left to socially challenged conventioneers.
