Bourbon Street, New Orleans
Bring a map when walking the French Quarter with your mother. Stroll down Royal or Dauphine Streets on a weekend afternoon and you'll find charming antique shops and restaurants with breezy outdoor seating. But make a wrong turn and you'll feel a growing sense of awkwardness as you and your lovely mother find yourselves on Bourbon Street walking past drunken half-dressed youths and strip clubs with conspicuously displayed signs advertising nudity within. Keep in mind that during Mardi Gras, the Bourbon scene spills throughout the city and the crazy crowds are nearly unavoidable.
