There are a variety of interesting shops and quite a few restaurants along Royal Street, including antique stores and art galleries. You're likely to be serenaded by a licensed entertainer and encounter a bigger or two along the street.

Royal Street wasn't my selection because we didn't visit this street. I couldn't undo the selection.

Nice street in the French quarter, great shops and restaurants. Walk to Royal and St. Anne at night and see the cathedral. See the statue of Jesus! The street has wonderful street musicians and artists. Quite a contrast from the craziness of Bourbon street.

High end antique stores, beautiful buildings, many art galleries. THIS is what I pictured when I knew we would be traveling to New Orleans.

It is a tourist st but this is an interesting street with a wide variety of shops from restaurants, antiques to art work and specialty shops. Make sure you walk the whole street and walk down the small alleys that run off the it.

Antiques, over priced contemporary furniture, and other high dollar shops will challenge your gold card limits. Nonetheless it is an interesting stroll down memory lane to window shop down this historic New Orleans street but don't wander over to Bourbon street with high priced antiques in hand you might just drop them after an inebriated tourist bumps into you.

We spent a few hours on Royal St. Didn't get a chance to eat at Court of Two Sisters in the courtyard this time, but it is a lovely niche restaurant on Royal. Choose a courtyard table. I especially lived the street musicians. A variety from jazz to zydeco to clasdical to country! Very talented young people. Gift shops had... More

Royal Street is one of the better shopping streets in the French Quarter, especially for antiques and some art. Lots of restaurants and bars as well.

The French Quarter's art and antique section. Although I not much of an antiquer, I love the art galleries.
