Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past seven days, you are no doubt aware of the latest development in skateboarding technology. The future has finally arrived, and it has arrived in the form of a Back to the Future-style hoverboard!

“Impossible!” you say. “Dangerous!” you propound. “It’s just some stupid Internet hoax that got all of our hopes up before it left our dreams crashing to the ground!” you exclaim.

No matter what you think about the hoverboard, here are the 11 best places to hoverboard–just as soon as you get yours.

1. Bourbon St. at AM

Where better to see looks of stunning, shocked, puke-inducing amazement than on Bourbon St. at five in the morning? You’ll still have plenty of audience, but the streets will be clear enough for you to race down just as fast as you please.

Try racing down the curbside gutters, then watch as all of those beads and broken cups fly up like so much confetti!
Best of all, you’ll get feedback on your hover technique that you just can’t find anywhere else.
