It was just fun to walk this street in the French Quarter, so much history and beauty. So much to see and there are quite a few well-known attractions on Royal. Love that it is all decorated for Carnival and Mardi Gras

Like everywhere else in NOLA and the French Quarter, Royal St has great shops and bars, look up and see the wrought iron fencing on the balcomies draped in green, gold and black trimings for Mardi Gras.

Wonderful galleries, plenty of excellent street music and a civilized walking pace. Take your time to take all the sites and sound in. Have a coffee or cocktail along the way in one of the charming cafes and experience New Orleans at its best.

People focus too much on the hardships so closely
associated with this well known working class
neighborhood when what’s really most remarkable about
the tightknit community is its indefatigable spirit of
rebirth and ability to stay true to its roots. Perhaps
not an ideal destination for those visitors who tend
to keep well within their comfort zones when traveling
or those with bucket lists filled to the brim with top

It's 2 streets over from Jackson Square. How far it is depends on where you are starting from on Royal. They cross each other.
