Not a trail but a must do hike along this famous block. To really experience Bourbon Street you have to walk this Street at night where all the crowd and noise are for half mile. Then you'll understand the mystery and why it's so popular. Bourbon Street (French: Rue du Bourbon) is a street in the heart of New Orleans' oldest neighborhood, the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana. It extends 13 blocks from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue. 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.
Not quite sure I would consider this a trail...great history. Walked the length of the city as we'll. Very dirty and crowded.
Not a trail, an interesting walk but sketcy.
Now, this is funny. I am 62 and have been hiking this trail for years without knowing it. Be careful of the wildlife.
LOL FRIDAY NIGHTS
Walk it sober at 5am Thursday thru Sunday. You will see what a zombie apocalypse looks like. Watch out for broken glass and oyster shells. Seeing people in this stupor will make you control your alcohol intake.
Probably the most famous (or infamous) street in America. You can't come to New Orleans and not see Bourbon Street. Been here many times.
Lots of places to fill your canteen on this trail...
Definitely not a nature type of hike, but there are definitely some animals to watch, and some "wild life" along the way. One of a kind street, the only one like it in America, and worth the experience. You find some major crowds during Mardi Gras, moderate crowds on any given night, all hours of the day or night.
I find it hard to remember all of my late night ramble on Bourbon street. I guess that's a recommendation in itself because I remember it was real fun.
This was a fun, bar hopping, hike. You definitely need to go during the day time because you get to see all the store fronts. Plus they have happy hour drink specials. Going at night is also a must because the streets come alive and there is so much to see. There is also a lot of rich history and interesting shops to see other than just bars.
You really have to come here on Mardi Gras. That's what New Orleans is really about. Walking Bourbon street during off season is actually pretty dead. But comes sun down it's totally the party place. Every night it's like that, it's unbelievable. Walking the streets besides Bourbon is also recommended because every block has a significant story to contribute to the history. Bourbon is a definite must see at night, a paradise for single people.
