Window shopping at its finest! Make sure and check out all the artists behind Jackson Square on Royal. Street performers, the most beautiful lamp show on the corn of Royal and St. Louis, I believe. A must stroll down step into history indeed.

Mardi Gras is an annual pilgrimage where we meet up with our friends annually. We stay just across Canal from the Quarter and use Royal to get around. The street is not packed but full enough to feel safe. Royal is also THE place to see art. The street is dotted with galleries of all types. There is something for... More

For those of you, like me, who enjoy a good time but don't like it to get out of hand, Royal Street is for you. Only a block away from the mayhem of Bourbon Street but with lots of interesting shops, restos and bars.

With the sun shining, it is one of the things to do to meander down Royal Street, stopping every so often to listen to the street music, window shop and then perhaps stop for a drink and a bite to eat whilst you plan the evenings entertainment. The architecture is worth looking at, and the street has lots of history.... More

From one end of Royal St to the other, one can experience all that is New Orleans. When in the Quarter, be sure to start at one one of Royal St and enjoy the stroll.

We stayed in a time share at the upper end of Royal St. just a block north of the defining line for the French Quarter. (Esplanade)From end to end Royal Street typifies the French Quarter. There are bars, music and all kinds of activity. It is right in the heart of all the action. If you stay here, all you... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
