Nice art shops and reasonable street music as you stroll the pedestrian section of the street. A little more sane than other parts of the quarter.

My favorite walk through area in the French Quarter. Each street in NOLA seems to have its very own character. Royal, think art, antiques, street music.

This was my favorite street to walk. It’s beautiful and I think the cleanest. Many fun and interesting shops along the way.

It is the window shopping version of Bourbon Street. Why? Because no one will ever be able to afford most of what is in the shops. High end retail. Walk up and down the strip all you want, even while avoiding mass amounts of tourists....More

Loved Royal Street. Excellent street music, wonderful shops, fascinating architecture. Bourbon Street is tacky beyond belief....spend your time here, and on the residential streets above Bourbon; Dauphine and Burgundy.

Royal Street was my favorite with its art collections, antiques and jewelry stores and street musicians, it's a great place to spend some time "window shopping" without all the partiers you find on Bourbon Street.

One street from Bourbon, entirely different world: galleries, antiques, jewelry. Beautiful and unusual things in every price range. Friendly and helpful shopkeepers. One of the wonder things about NOLA.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Saint Ann Street is about a 25 minute walk from Royal Street. Right on N. Priest Street then left on Louis. Look for Royal Street from Louis.
