Doreen Ketchens, French Quarter

Doreen Ketchens, French Quarter

"This was a really special moment for me. I was walking down Royal Street and heard these amazing street musicians, 'Doreen's Jazz New Orleans.' I took a few pictures of them, listened to their wonderful, spirited music, and then honed in on Doreen Ketchens, the clarinetist and singer. Hopefully this particular photograph shows her passion for the music, a passion she so clearly delivered."

    No credible list would omit Barbados - A wealth of world class events and festivals (including a new pop/electro festival called Music Factory, an increasingly popular spring break spot, and then all year long there is the excellent nightlife at the famous St. Lawrence Gap, Bridgetown, and increasingly lively nightlife on 1st and 2nd sts in Holetown, and of course the wildly popular Oistins fish market. One of the great things about Barbados is that the nightlife is not exclusively a tourist phenomenon, but the many clubs, bars, restaurants, and lounges are frequented by tourists and locals alike! Plus Barbados is very safe, you can safely walk at night (never walk anywhere strange alone), and there are easily accessible cabs and buses to take you where you need to go. I would say this combination of things puts Barbados among the top party destinations. I would say San Juan would be a tough act to follow, but otherwise, Barbados is the place to be.
