The art gallery we dropped into for a browse featured a Chagall that could be yours for a mere $800,000. If it's posters of Elvis you want, the next street over is Bourbon Street.

We stayed at the new hotel on Royal st. We parked on the street with no problems. We walked to all the area clubs and restaurants. Super cool vibe. I won't stay anywhere else while visiting Nola.

Royal street is such an unsung gem of the French Quarter. It’s perfect for shopping, eating, history, art and impromptu music. Royal has something for everyone. Definitely visit when you’re in town.

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

The store hours vary by the type store. The bars and restaurants and other eating places were open late. I believe the drug store at Royal and Iberville was open late too. This store also had an assortment of foods and... More

Lots of jazz variety throughout New Orleans. If you are looking specifically for Dixieland or trad jazz, it can be found at many venues including the Steamboat Natchez dinner cruise and at bars such as the Spotted Cat on... More
