    Keep safe at night !!

    Just be very careful in New Orleans at night time...... Its a great fun city at night but it is imperative that you keep along the populated areas and stick to what seems to be the "safe streets".
    When moving between Canal street in the city or the riverwalk/aquarium to the french quarter/bourbon street be careful to take the streets that are most populated, getting off the beaten path in New Orleans at night can be risky and not very nice.
    But overall just common sense really, nothing major to stress about.

    Do not venture far from the crowds off Bourbon St. at night. Be aware of your surroundings. Do not fall for the dancing and 'posing' street people who want donations. When you pull your money out, they make a grab for it.

    Walking alone through the French Quarter late at night is a risk. It is a high crime area. They have patrols on motorcycle and horseback through the Quarter, but it is still dangerous.

    'Hilarious' how the tourists and sight seers think they know the city better than those of us who have lived here a lifetime.

      I really do not think that is the case. People are simply writing about their own experiences when they visited.....and that is what VT is for. Whether you personally agree or disagree is irrelevant. And, with the greatest of respect, the experience of someone who has always lived in a particular location can never be the same as that of someone who has only visited that location. So perhaps you might like to add some tips and info of your own about New Orleans? Information from 'those of us who have lived here a lifetime' is always useful.
