Great shopping and an energetic vibe with a bit of hipster at times. Take the stroll....We went to a hat shop and bought a hand made women's hat, which they are shipping. Great attentive service by shop keepers and brilliant selections of unique pieces.

Royal Street is just a block off and runs parallel to Bourbon st. When you have tired of all the gross stuff on Bourbon st., stroll down Royal st.and enjoy great shopping, better street musician, interesting art galleries and generally just a more peaceful, bordering on romantic walk.

Lively and full of culture. Didn't like all the drunk people everywhere and the indifferent police. But close to Bourbon and the wonderful French quarter

Beautiful French Quarter street with great architecture. Wonderful to stroll, with antique shops, art galleries and other shops. Often have good quality musicians busking on the streets. Many restaurants on Royal Street or just off of it.

A nice street to walk down. A mixture of high end galleries and tourist traps. Great street musicians and some good eateries. Architecture is fantastic.

This is a great street in NOLA. Can't say enough positive about Royal House Oyster Bar. It's our "go to" whenever we are in NOLA and the art is awesome to see. Chartres Street is parallel and shouldn't be missed as well. Great bars and restaurants on both streets. Could make you say Bourbon Street...?

Antiques and beautiful architect. Did notice that New Orleans is cleaning the streets much better than the past. Only Bourbon street reeked! Don't know why...as it was clean.

If you are looking for a break from crazy Bourbon St. this is the place to go. Royal street has so many great shops and art galleries. I enjoyed shopping and perusing the stores. There were lots of musicians playing jazz in the street which gives Royal the perfect atmosphere. Very enjoyable afternoon!
