Adrien de Pauger designed the city’s street layout. He named the streets after French royal houses and Catholic saints. Bourbon Street paid homage to France’s ruling family, the House of Bourbon. This might come as a surprise to those who think its called Bourbon Street because most people are stumbling drunk when they are there.
This picture was taken when we walked further down Bourbon Street past all the bars, restaurants and and strip clubs. Traveling with a wife and nine month old son might not be how some of you wish to spend your trip to Bourbon Street but these moments of sobriety allowed the opportunity to take advantage of the city’s rich history and architecture. On our way back towards the hotel we did partake in “Huge Ass Beers” and Hand Grenades.
