Lots of nice antique shops and quaint little stores. On the weekend the street was closed to cars and the streets were alive with wonderful jazz and other various forms of street musicians!

this is the place for authentic French antiques. Great street for shopping and window shopping. There are plenty of things to see on this street and you are only a block away from bourbon.

We love Royal Street and whenever possible, stay on this street when we visit. There are several art galleries and high end antique stores that line this street and they're always worth at least window shopping, if not a little splurging. Many other shops line this street from upscale boutiques and cooking/food stores, and shops that sell hand-made (leather) Venetian... More

One block from Bourbon St, and we loved it so much more! Blocked off during the daytime to allow performers to run the street. We would spend hours here each day getting our fill of the various artists, musicians, entertainers, performers......

Pretty much the same type of shops, restaurants and the like with less of the truly vulgar experiences you will find on Bourbon.

Great window shopping unless you are looking for antiques. There is some fun dress shops but a little more expensive the the usual. A nice stroll at night.

Love the shopping in the antique and jewelry stores. Has quaint cafe's to eat at or just get a snack. Boutique clothing stores were wonderful. And just walking around the wonderful Art gallery's of painting and glass were exciting.

If your in the French Qtr you will be near Royal St. It's a main rd you should walk through at least once. We found ourselves many times getting to other streets while in the quarter anyways. If you like antiques there are many but very expensive not stuffy like they can be else where. Art galleries also around.

I thought Royal Street was more like I expected Bourbon Street to be with a little nicer bars and restaurants. You need to see it all but spend more time on Royal Street
