Tourists hang out on Bourbon and Canal Streets.
Locals hang out on Frenchmen and Magazine Streets.
A little of both can be found on St Charles Avenue.

Small city, Northwest Georgia. Broad street is of course, our main drag.

In Houston, there are TONS of popular streets and it just depends on what part of the city

Washington Ave.
Upper Kirby
Montrose
W. Grey
Westheimer (specifically, the intersection of Westheimer and Post Oak is the heart beat of Uptown)
Main and Fannin where they run through the Museum District
The major streets that run through Rice Village (Rice, University, Sunset and Morningside)
Richmond behind Greenway
The midtown streets (Bagby, Brazos, Louisiana)
Heights Blvd.

For the tourists: Las Vegas Blvd. Many tourists never even leave this street during their whole vacation, other than on the way in and out of town.
