My family and I are going on a weekend trip to New Orleans and I am confused if Canal street is referring to Bourbon street. Is it the same?
not at all
Canal street is huge street with 3 lanes on each side and the street car in the middle, it has many shops, hotels and stores on both sides.
Bourbon street is a small but famous street because of all of the bars and strip clubs that have made it famous, at night portions of it are closed to vehicular traffic (no cars) and people stroll up and down it all night creating a parade of characters including tourists and locals that has to be seen to be explained. you can carry and drink alcohol while you walk as long as it’s not in a glass container.
I’d avoid the overpriced t shirt shops and strip clubs but you can find some good music and fun if you know where to look
A bloke in a checked shirt takes to the streets and asks passers-by to do various things for him, including singing offensive songs at girls; chanting Oh-lay, oh-lay oh-lay oh-lay; playing with a shopping trolley and a traffic cone; in the street; pouring sick over themselves and in their hair; fighting, etc. The presenter is John Luke Roberts.

Me and my friends are going to plan a weekend road trip to New Orleans.None of us have ever been to New Orleans. We like to drink and have a good time. We also want to visit Bourbon St. What is the best way to do this? Hotel suggestions? Any transportation to Bourbon St? Taxi prices? Must do or see things?. We are trying to do this as cheep as possible, but any help is appreciated.
I can’t add much to who dat’s answer except I like the Hotel St. Marie. It’s inexpensive (about $60 a night), clean, and it has a pool. It’s like so close to Bourbon St. it’s crazy. I don’t know if they have parking, I never drive there. Their sister hotel is the St. Pierre up the street. Also inexpensive but no pool.

I don’t really know many drinks, usually at home I just stick to the gin&tonic, margaritas, and beer.
What drinks do you think would be best to try out for my 21st?
And are there any New Orleans specialty drinks I should try while there?
I like almost any drink, unless it tastes like straight alcohol.
