Historical Streets of the World


Bourbon Street, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

New Orleans' loudest thoroughfare, Bourbon Street has become synonymous with the city's party life. Bright lights, throbbing music and wrought-iron balconies characterize the 13-block strip stretching through NOLA's French Quarter. Although some might think that it's named after one of America's favorite tipples, it was actually an honor given to the House of Bourbon (France's ruling family). Engineer Adrien de Pauger designed the city's street layout in 1721, while Louisiana was under French control.
