I visited Magazine street again on a Saturday and spent more time walking up and down, great number of tiny and interesting shops. My daughter especially enjoyed the vintage clothing shops. One complaint is that cars don't stop when you are crossing at a crosswalk, two times I had cars actually drive around me! and fast. Crazy, so be careful.

We always make a trip over to Magazine Street for shopping and eating at the Rum House (where the drinks are better than the food, but still). From art galleries to furniture stores to places like Lush, NOLA Couture, and quirky clothing options, Magazine Street has a little something for everyone (yes, even kids). Plan on street parking with meter... More

Such a contrast to the historical parts of the French Quarter - only a 20 minute cab ride but you could be in another country. Beautiful old homes with lots of stores and cafes, best restaurant is Shaya which makes the trip worthwhile. A cab to the area is easy but difficult to get back - caught a bus though... More

Nice place to do a little shopping. Be aware that the district is long/large and there can be a significant walking distance between shopping areas. Also most of the shops are pretty pricey. However there is a lot of unique stuff to look at and some decent restaurants too. We enjoyed the walk (after a visit to the WWII Museum)... More

While i was staying in the garden district, I had to goto a grocery store. Now you know there will be those boutique grocery stores, but i was actually looking for some Hennessy but didn't want to be overpaying. I ran into this nice lady at Walgreens and she suggested I goto Beaux Mart. It was on Magazine and sixth... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
