Is it safe to walk around New Orleans at night?
There are a couple of places where you have to use common sense, but the Quarter is just fine, and even Bourbon Street at night is non-threatening. Pberney--Dont let all the stories spook you. Use common sense and be aware of your surroundings, and if you feel the need to take a cab take it. You should be fine!
