When you have the time to drive down either St. Charles, Prytania or Magazine, I'll opt for the coziness of Magazine. It's packed full of restaurants, stores and eye candy, especially on Saturdays and Sundays. Try Whole Foods for people watching and free samples. There are too many restaurants to pick one or two; try them all and it would still take you years. Leave the big trucks at home and opt for a motorcycle or small car. It's that close from the traffic lane to the parked cars.

Strolling along Magazine Street is a fun pass-time for shopping in little unique shops with lots of character. Best done with a car because Magazine Street is a series of 2-3 blocks of shops separated by 1/2 mile of residences.

this street may be little creepy at night but worth to stroll during the day since it host several nice coffee shops and art houses. It runs parallel to St.Charles street.

Great street for clothes, gift and antique shopping. Also lots of great restaurants, dessert places, coffee shops and hidden gems. New stores and restaurants are opening all of the time so it's always an adventure. It's a long street so you need a car and money for the parking meters.

Something for everyone, good shopping (ladies will know what that means!), candy shops, costume shops, tshirts, antique shops, bars, casual dining and a few finer dining places. A goodmstartingnpoint is Magazine Street and 5th Street. Both sides of Magazine Street are chock full of gems.
