I had almost forgotten how crazy Bourbon Street gets on Friday nights. It has been something of a tradition for me to walk down Bourbon Street one last time before leaving town. And, as I made one final stroll tonight, I was glad that I hadn't spent much time on Bourbon Street this trip. It's an awesome place to visit once or twice during a trip, but, if you spend all of your time there, you'll miss all of the great experiences that New Orleans has to offer.
I spent most of the day visiting little museums around the corner like the Voodoo Museum and the Conti Wax Museum. I finished up with an amazing dinner at the allegedly haunted Muriel's. I don't think I have ever spent so much on a meal before in my life, but it was well worth it. It was the perfect end to the perfect trip.
So.....what now? I feel like, after four trips, I have done everything that I have wanted to do in New Orleans. Maybe I have had enough. Maybe it's time to move on. But, then again, maybe I need to find more to do so I can have a reason to come back. We'll see how it all shakes out.
And, remember, folks: What happens on Bourbon Street ends up on the Internet
