I loved seeing the shotgun houses, the plantings, and the restaurants along the way. Royal is a comfortable walking street, and even in the evening, I felt comfortable walking alone.

You can walk and shop for hours on this street alone. If you cna't find something then there is something wrong with you. From glitz to tarnish they have it. Just a must if you visit there you have to take a stroll doen this street.

We loved walking down royal st. There are so many great shops, restaurants & good people watching. It's closed to vehicle traffic part of the time so it's easy to navigate. Much better walking than bourbon st.

I love this street. The galleries and antique shops are great to stroll through after brunch or with a drink before an early dinner. There is a female duo that play a violin and guitar on the weekends. They are our favorite performers in all of NOLA.

Much more refined than Bourbon Street with quaint shops. Visit the Monteleone Hotel and hop on the Carousel Bar for a fun drink

Hard to believe Royal is one block from Bourbon....but it's amazing! Nothing like Bourbon. Great shops! Musicians playing on the sidewalk/streets. Nice people and they make you feel very welcome! You can almost always find something that you must have!

I would have to say that Royal street is my perennial favorite street for a walk; more elegant, with art galleries, lighting stores, elegant hotels, a tiny grocery store and a calmer atmosphere than Bourbon street; a block away.

They have such wonderful furniture, statues and... More
