Where do the locals hang in New Orleans?
if you are coming to New Orleans to get a nice mixture of quality jazz music and lovely food, you MUST come to Frenchmen Street. its a lively setting with plenty of bars and restaurants that offer all sorts of local food and drinks.
Is it safe to walk from Bourbon street to Frenchman street?
Yes, it is perfectly safe. I have never even had any problems at all at night, much less during the late afternoon. During the late afternoon and the early to mid-evening you could pretty much walk any street you want without any problems. over a year ago.
