I stayed at the Andrew Jackson Hotel and loved it!! We took a walk down Royal St after dinner and it was very enjoyable. It isn't as rowdy as Bourbon St but you still feel that New Orleans vibe and hear the live music playing....More

Lots of fun places to shop. My favorite was Forever New Orleans. Fun street life and some great street music. A good street to meander around.

All the various shops with art and knickknacks and such. Tourist-y as well as just good southern/Nola culture. What a great mix. Also all kinds of performances. Music. Poetry. Talents. And some people just plain begging. It's all on one street (actually a few)

Had a gret time on Royal with friends. Royal has so many activities within reach. Great food and without the monotony of Bourbon.

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

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
