“Food and antique stuff .”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

When time is not the essence I suggest that you try this one. Walk this seven mile strip at yor own pace . A perfect exercise . A one-whole-day-affair. This is like entering a museum with an open air, you can stop to take a snack or buy a souvenier item anytime . And the antique stores with all those historic items they look enticing. BUT hold that green for a moment do some research before purchasing that stuff. Check on ebay or amazon or any antique website. You do not want to be sorry later. I saw an old Mark Twain book I was staggered when I found out the price. Visit the WW2 Museum, A MUST.

“Magazine Street is 7 miles long”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Magazine Street is 7 miles long, the WWII museum is located on this street. On the map it looked like a short walk from Canal Street to the Museum, well it isn't, do yourself a favor and take the bus. We ate at Mahoney's Po Boy shop. We saw it featured on Diners Drive In's and Dives. I had not been pleased with other venues featured on that show but was pleasantly surprised by Mahoney's. Nothing fancy, but very good food. I loved the onion rings,

“Best variety of shopping & eating!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Once you've done the typical Bourbon Street area, go treat yourself to Magazine Street! I spend an entire day walking, shopping, eating, drinking & even hit a spa at the end of the day! What a great way to spend a day in NOLA.

“Antiques and shopping”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Fun place to spend a lazy afternoon. Take a walk down the sidewalk and see interesting antique shops, family owned places, restaurants, and get some exercise. Magazine Street has it all!

“Another Street”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We walked around much of the French Quarter and enjoyed the architecture and finally agreed that you will find pretty much the same thing where ever you go.
