New Orleans loves to hate being on lists. Most dangerous, most violent, dumbest, fattest, most hurricane-y, etc. But as of right now, Bourbon Street ranks No. 33 of the top 100 places to stand in the United States, beating ol' American landmarks like the Grand Canyon and Grand Central Station, among others.
StoodThere compiles online votes of the best places to stand across the globe. "The most wondrous, inspiring, or thought-provoking locations," the site says. Bourbon obviously meets all criteria. To stand on Rue Bourbon, inhaling deeply the smell of week-old diapers with a Huge Ass Beer in hand. America!
One commenter says: "Hated it. Lots of drunk, rowdy folks. Not my cup of tea!"
