This was my favorite part of our trip. Lots to see, music to hear, food to eat and cute shops. A good mix of everything New Orleans has to offer.

Just one block over from Bourbon Street -- great eats, art and shopping! A bit quieter and less crowded - but fine hospitality!

We love walking on this street during the day and at night. Lots of beautiful shops. I love going into the crystal chandelier store and the Christmas shops. The buildings are also nice to look at. The only annoying part is the incessant soap pushers...More

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.

The store hours vary by the type store. The bars and restaurants and other eating places were open late. I believe the drug store at Royal and Iberville was open late too. This store also had an assortment of foods and... More
