Wandering Bourbon Street
A stroll down Bourbon Street is a quintessential New Orleans experience. While you probably won't find many locals wandering the area for nightlife, you can't visit New Orleans without at least taking a stroll down the iconic street. The later it gets, the more debauchery you can expect (beads don't just get thrown during Mardi Gras). You'll see everything from lady boys spanking tourists to toddlers break dancing to the Green Man dancing in the streets.
