“St Patrick's Parade”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I don't have opinion about Magazine Street. Kinda very long street and confusing. If you lived in Asia or traveled to undeveloped countries to shop, this place is meh. Anyway, we went to this street because of St Patrick's Day Parade. I never been to Mardi Gras, we just arrived here but a family told us, the best time to experience Mardi Gras version of family friendly is St Patrick's parade. We thought we had so much fun, catching beads and such. Again, I don't feel comfortable with drunk people were holding bottle dancing in front of my small kid. Accident can happen. Great for experience.

“Get out of the French Quarter”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Take the #11 bus at Canal and Camp out to Magazine and Louisiana for blocks of funky shopping and more restaurants. So easy to get to-only about 5 minutes on the bus-download the RTA app to show the bus arrival time for each stop and you are set.

“just a few splashes of "intresting" in a sea of "meh"”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Maybe I'm disappointed because I expects to find interesting galleries (there were none) but even when I put that aside, I have to say there is nothing amazing about this street at all. A small number of nice clothes shops… that's it. I found it to be a terrible waste of time.

“Magazine Street - New Orleans, LA”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

A major road through New Orleans, it ends (or starts, at Canal St): across Canal street it becomes Decatur St. in the French Quarter.

Our Hotel was on Magazine and Canal St. so close to the French Quarter.

Going away from the French Quarter, Magazine St. runs through the Warehouse/Arts District and on through the Garden District (older, upscale homes) down to the Audubon Park and Audubon Zoo.

You can't help but travel on this street sometime while you are in New Orleans.
