    Bourbon Street is the core of New Orleans' nightlife. It is a street that runs the length of the historic French Quarter, and is lined with bars, nightclubs, and souvenir shops.

  • Cafe du Monde

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Everybody wants to try a beignet here and rightly so. Café Du Monde is large and open 24 hrs so there really is no excuse. But be warned - three beignets are enough for two - we bought three more to take home and eat later. Still good, but not the same. In April 2013, two café au laits and six beignets cost under $12. Great place to people watch...

    Orlando Things to Do

    I am not a Furry Potter--I mean Harry Potter-- fan in the slightest, but I still thought the Harry Potter World at Universal was pretty cool, other than the the throngs of people it attracts. The town is so authentic the wood is real wood, the stone is real stone, no plastic junk here. Even the butterbeer is real butterbeer, but only if you pay $5...

    Orlando Restaurants

    This is a great place for seafood, the decor is bright and cheery colors and the service is great. My favorite is the dungeness crab legs! I get the 1 1/2 pound platter, it comes with boiled potatoes and cole slaw. Very good!

    Los Angeles Things to Do

    I'm sure most people, at least in the US, are aware of what Universal Studios is. So, I'm not going to go into great detail, but I will say that the amount of detail and effort put into the attractions is impressive and, for many people this is quite a trip. I'm not a huge fan of expensive tickets, tourist activities and long lines. That said, I...

    Los Angeles Restaurants

    Last visit November, 2012 Californians are passionate about their In-N-Out Burger's, the drive thru is always stacked with cars, there is always a line inside with people waiting patiently for their orders. I usually find myself at In-N-Out at least once when I'm in So Cal and this trip was no exception, there was one just up the street from my...

    Cancún Restaurants

    Our taxi drops us just about 2 feet from the entrance to La Parilla in Cancun. Talk about curbside service. Enter into an open air borderline outdoor restaurant, as the walls are not exactly walls but shaped and curled cut outs of wrought iron. It was late for lunch, about 3 pm, but the restaurant was still pretty full. Our friendly waiter took our...

    Key West Things to Do

    Duval Street in Key West is known for its ***colorful*** nightlife. You can see a little bit of all kinds of attire, including some men who like to dress in unusual and/or women's clothing. There is even one bar called Garden of Eden where clothing is optional. I've never figured out how the patrons go from off the street obviously wearing clothes...

    This is just the kind of funky local place Boyd and I love to find! The outside seating area is covered by sails to protect from sun and rain, and there is a small stage for music. We went for breakfast, and it was great - chickens running between the tables (chickens seem to roam free all over KW). Loved the gift shop - t-shirts and postcards, but...

    Ok so you can't come to Toronto without going to the CN tower restaurant. They kindly gave us a window seat as we were on our honeymoon and i have to say it was amazing!!! - we got there for 6pm so watched the sun set and the lights come on. The food was nothing special. Yes the portions were quite good but the peri peri chicken I don't think had...

    My brother in law had really talked up the 'smoked meat' of Montreal, so it was a 'must try', on our visit here. We ordered the smoked meat sandwich on rye, with a sides of chips, coleslaw and cherry cola to drink. The meat is just like corned beef that we make at home, nicely salty, but hardly a hint of smoky taste. The coleslaw was a good...

    You need to be cautious of the ocean. If you don't want to risk getting cut by Zebra Muscles, wear water shoes, i didn't but its a suggestion. Also when the tides become stronger make sure to always e on the look out for your swim partner, the current usually pulls you down the beach.

    I was in Stephos this week and did not like the attention of the waiter Allan. When I finalized my food, he even asked me if I wanted the bill and has put the bill on the table. After that, I handed him my credit card for payment. Then he came back and told me that sometimes credit cards from Brazil are not accepted. An absurd! because I used the...

    My wife and I were shopping in the Farmer's Market and the Faneuil Market when we decide to grab a bite to eat. I didn't feel like eating at one of the food hall stands so we decided to try this place out. I liked that the restaurant was upstairs and not on the main level where the crowds tend to mull. We were seated at a nice table for two...

    As other post have mentioned it is truly a full, non-claustrophobic cave. From the street it doesn't look like much but as you enter there was a statue-like man dressed in full traditional costume. He startled my 13 year old but she just laughed it off. As you walk down the stairs you notice that it is muggy but not uncomfortable at all. We just...
