Supposedly the location of numerous antique stores, we found one genuine antique store that was open and another flea market type mall. Not worth the time.

Pretty long street with blocks and blocks of shops, restaurants and bars. We stayed off Magazine, so we were able wander around for a couple hours whenever we weren’t doing something else. There are so many shops and restaurants to see, I’m pretty sure we didn’t even get through half. We went into an antique shop, bought some cool shirts... More

Great street to walk down. The shopping really doesn't start until around 2000 Magazine so take the number 11 bus rather than walk from the downtown area. It's a nice stroll after that seeing the homes in the Garden District. You might also want to consider taking the same bus after about 4000 over to the zoo.

We really enjoyed Magazine Street while in New Orleans. It reminded us of an area near our own home with nice shops, businesses and restaurants. We rode the St Charles Streetcar down to the Garden District and walked down to Magazine. The interesting mix of shops, restaurants, businesses and buildings being renovated was really fun to see. Everyone was friendly... More

Not a mall, but rather a collection of little neighborhoods, mostly shopping but also some residential. All the shops are locally owned and express the creativity of the individuals who own them and the city where they live. We especially enjoyed the Fleurty Girl tshirt shop (tshirts with a NOLA feel), Potsalot Pottery (owned by a charming couple who make... More

not into antiques? then this place is definitely not for you! not much shopping other than West Elm, Walgreens and the grocery store for cheap wine, it's not worth the mighty long walk from Canal Street!

The kind of shopping street that locals love - low key, practical, awesome good, food and drink, and at least on the day we were there, mostly locals.
