royal street has so much to do and see, there are vast amounts of stores and places to eat. You could walk on royal street for a few hours and still not see everything! Definitely a street to check out while visiting New Orleans.

If you like art and antiques, Royal Street is a must when you visit New Orleans. From antique weapons to antique furniture, each store has its own charm. Art from locals and world renown is available for viewing or purchase.

Lots of antique shops, little restaurants and bars and shops in general. In the heart of the French Quarter but not as crazy as Bourbon Street.

Royal Street is not as famous as Bourbon St but it still a lot of fun, I was able to watch a parade on Royal St. The crowd was into the parade so the atmosphere was great, lots of shops and hotels on Royal St as well.

Royal street is my favorite one to walk down in the French Quarter. Nice shops and restaurants. Quieter than Bourbon and not so trashy

When we arrived in NOLA, we were told you have to "visit" Bourbon Street, but go one street over to Royal and it's much nicer. It was a little nicer, but still filled with bars and gift shops. Disappointed.

We went for a walk down Royal Street, and did some shopping. There is an extensive group of stores up and down Royal Street, with a fair number of restaurants. The sidewalks are a little uneven, so watch your footing. We didn't have to dodge any puke piles like we did on Bourbon Street.

If you love to shop, you'll love Royal Street. Even if you don't you can stroll down the street and see what's in the windows of the many old historic building shops that line the street. It's a great place to pick up a souvenir for that favorite person at home. You'll find all kinds of locally made gifts, unique... More

Fantastic, varied shopping opportunities. Loved Forever New Orleans for reasonable gifts. Prices at the shops were anywhere from a few dollars to $150,000 Chandeliers. Lots to see and do, even for those who are reluctant to shop.
