It's always interesting and changing. Galleries, street performers, restaurants. It's always packed so it slows you down and forces you to look around.

Royal Street is filled with great shops that sells items ranging from souvenirs to classic old world antiques. This street also boasts great hotels, party venues, historic buildings and restaurants. It offers the visitor the old world charm that is unique to the French Quarter.

Shops are expensive but merchandise is well chosen. Art gallery's are wonderful and not all New Orleans art. Fun shops for young folks as well. Be prepared to spend lots!

Only 1/2 block from our hotel, Le Marais, Royal St has the upscale antique, kitchen wares, dress shops, and, of course the lovely Louisiana Supreme Court campus. Royal is a must do.

Royal Street is closed to automobile traffic during the day. Street musicians play and the music is fantastic. I saw one musician playing a steel guitar, a desk bell and a suitcase. I guess you had to be there. The shops on this street have unique items but pricey.

I could have walked up and down this street all week. So many shops to window shop (or really shop) in, beautiful buildings with so much character. Much more interesting than Bourbon Street.
