We stayed on Royal street. There are plenty of near by shops and restaurant. It’s a nice street to walk and felt safe.

This street was a favorite for our kids...had great little shops and historical places. We were able to see the Hotel Royal courtyard without being guests—takes you back in time.

We enjoyed walking around on Royal Street and exploring so much more than Bourbon Street. Cool things to see!

This street is calmer than Bourbon but has plenty of neat shops and great restaurants and bars. Several places on it are easily recognized from movies and tv shows.

Royal Street is my favorite street in New Orleans. Just one street over from Bourbon, it has a much more refined vibe with antique shops and classy restaurants and shopping.

This is one of the great shopping streets in New Orleans. Especially the galleries are worth visiting. Watch out though, the tarmac is a bit rough to walk on: keep your eyes everywhere. If you do, you will have great time.

Royal street is definitely the place to go shopping. There are so many shops selling local ware. There are unique finds. The street is full of art galleries, clothing stores and jewelry stores. A must see when you visit the Big Easy.

Saint Ann Street is about a 25 minute walk from Royal Street. Right on N. Priest Street then left on Louis. Look for Royal Street from Louis.
