When walking down Royal Street I noticed a lot of restaurants, small shops and art galleries. I enjoyed going in and out of the little shops and browsing their offerings. This is a good place to go for a nice relaxing walk down a quaint street.

Great shops, restaurants and bars - not as rowdy as Bourbon (this is a different animal) ... Hotel Monteleone was great for a drink at the Carousel Bar, Court of Two Sisters is great for brunch -

You could go crazy in the shops but you need to know your antiques. Art shops are also here and some truly fine work.

Ok, here's another time I won't lament to "get out of the Quarter." Avoid Bourbon Street - or spend 5 minutes there if you must. Royal Street is the place to be. Great shops, great art galleries. One of my favorite is Antieau gallery. The artist (Chris Roberts-Antieau) is completely self taught, which causes me to cry in my drink... More

We spent a lot of time on Royal Street - eating, shopping, and antiquing. Something for everybody in every price range. Don't miss the street musicians.

A tip for Royal St.: Besides the Fact it's in NOLA (that should say enough right there), a local told my wife and I everyday at a certain time the street is officially close to traffic so that musicians can come from all around and just play music on the streets. It's a big party, and shopping, eating, and just... More

I love Royal Street, lots of cute little shops, eateries and houses to peek in and see the beautiful courtyards. A very charming street in New Orleans.

Royal Street is a joy to visit. There are many shops and boutiques offering "everything New Orleans". We enjoyed browsing the many art galleries which displayed NO themed paintings, photographs and prints. I think what I liked best was the street musicians. One in particular was "Tanya and Dorise" a duo playing violin and guitar. They were unbelievable. Tanya's violin... More

This street is very pleasant to walk down. Lots of boutiques and restaurants to choose from. Most of the streets in the French Quarter have a harsh odor to them but Royal was pleasant to walk down.
