The Hungry Nomad: Just your typical day on Bourbon St. (New Orleans)

February 1, 2011

Just your typical day on Bourbon St. (New Orleans)

Bourbon Street (French: Rue Bourbon) is a famous and historic street that spans the length of the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana. When founded in 1718, the city was originally centered around the French Quarter.  New Orleans has since expanded, but "The Quarter" remains the cultural hub, and Bourbon Street is the street best known by visitors. Although, once you've seen it you really won't be drawn back to Bourbon since present day bourbon is filled with drunks (day and night), rowdy college kids, strippers hanging out by their clubs, and at times it can be quiet dangerous. Many hang out in the balconies and will throw you beads if you are drunk enough to flash them your boobs. Although sometimes they'll be nice enough and just throw you one without you having to expose your privates. It is however, packed, day and night! So if you are looking for some crazy fun then definitely make your way to Bourbon. If you are really in need of getting drunk at 9 am. Don't fret: bourbon street is waiting for you. 

I personally MUCH prefer the street parallel to Bourbon: Royal street. Its filled with antique shops, restaurants, and jazz musicians performing on the street. (see my post: french quarter, new Orleans for more).

Thanks for the post Kim. I also have some post on my blog from restaurants I've eaten at in New Orleans. Bourbon street is definitely... wild. haha. It was a bit too crazy for my taste. I walked all over the French Quarter and found the architecture beautiful but the heat was stifling.
