Reviewed March 19, 2013

Royal Street is one street over from Bourbon toward the river. The shops are quaint and friendly. The blocks are safe to walk through and and you are practically at Jackson Square. Having visited some homes on Royal Street it is amazing at how elegant of home hides behind those doors.

“Love the Shopping during the day!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Every time we go to NOLA, a stroll along Royal is one of our highlights. The fabulous boutiques and kitchen shops mean I always come home with something I wasn't intending to buy... and and estatic about it. In the morning, you can get a famous NOLA Bloody Mary or Mimosa and stroll along the street. Or, in the afternoon heat, a frozen speciality or beer is great. The sidewalks are narrow and there is usally some sort of renovation going on somewhere, so it's not very "stroller friendly".

Shopping is exciting. You find things here that are unique to New Orleans. You can party along this area, shop til you drop, eat all kinds of food and never get bored.

“great place to browse”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Best things about Royal Street were the small shops selling art and antiques, and the restaurants. This is a must walk in the French Quarter.

“Royal Street - New Orleans, LA”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Great little street one block off Bourbon St. If you aren't a college guy on a forgetful road trip and you have your family with you...best to avoid Bourbon St. and go one block over to get to your destinations in the Quarter (St. Louis Cathedral - Jackson Sq., Cafe Du Mond.

Starts at Canal St. and runs through the Fren Quarter.

Lot of souvenier shops and architecture to enjoy.
Family friendly street.

Be aware of the hot sauce displays everywhere; there are many brands that are not what you want in your child's vocabulary.
