Royal Street was one of my favorite places to walk down. The artwork in the galleries was such a beautiful site. There were beautiful antique stores as well. As with many streets in NOLA, lots of people panhandling. But still a great place.

Royal Street is known for it's antique shops, but there are two things I want to highlight about this famous street. First of all, it is here you will most likely enjoy some of the best music you will hear your entire stay in the Big Easy. It is here you will find Grandpa Elliott and many more outstanding musicians,... More

This is a favorite street for all the entertainment and shops. They have high end antiques to speciality stores. Most are fun to window shop and the noise level is lower than other streets. They have great food also...from seafood to pasta. Recommend and always enjoy!

The shops on the street are interesting, entertaining, and family friendly during the day. What's inside the shops is almost as interesting as the people walking outside of the shops. Everyone was friendly and it was a great way to spend some time in NOLA.

When visiting royal most people use as a way to get to bourbon st. Don't do this!!! Continue from canal as far as you can...the houses are beautiful and the shop exquisite!!! We were surprised more people weren't enjoying the quiet!

I love to walk along Royal looking in windows. The shops there have beautiful things for sale and are a feast for the eyes. Often in the day time there are musicians and other entertainers in the street. I love best to listen to Doreen Ketchens who is often in front of Rouses on Royal at St Peters.
