NO is absolutely disgusting but it is a lot of fun. IMO its the dumpiest city i have ever been to in the states. lots of cool cultural stuff, good food and the people are cool but its pretty nasty.
i would have liked to have seen it before katrina hit. first time i was down in the area was for post-katrina service
edit: im going to be going down to thibodeaux/houma later this year to visit some friends. should be some fun redfish action
It hasn't changed, it was the same before Katrina. Bourbon does stink though. Make sure you get some crawfish down here, not in the quarter though, they're way too expensive. I've seen signs in the quarter they wanted 10-11$ a pound for crawfish, outside of the quarter it's 2.85-3$ a pound.
