“Take the bus”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

There is a bus that just goes back and forth on Magazine Street from past the Audubon zoo to Canal Street and back and forth and back and forth. Quite fast too. So if you want to get off and back on you then buy the $3 unlimited rides day pass. You can stop on the street that Layfayette cemetery is on and across the street is Commander's Palace easily walking distance from Magazine street and then even walk the garden district on a self guided tour and then hop back on the bus... Take the bus to the zoo (it stops right in front)... Then just get on and off where ever it looks interesting.

“Great Shopping.”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

My husband and I were in NOLA for Mardi Gras and spent some time on Monday morning, March 3rd shopping along Magazine St. He bought me a lovely necklace at Mignon Fagnet's shop. I have several pieces of her jewelry and it was so nice to visit her shop. The sales ladies were wonderful and so helpful.

“Love the stores!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Shopped starting at GOGO jeweler all the way to the fun women's store A girl is A Gun at 6010 Magazine Street then went to the zoo in Audubon park. Took the bus back toward downtown and ate at Juan's Flying burrito. So many friendly people and so much fun and unique stuff!

“Stroll and stroll slowly”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

It's a bit out of the way but worth the trip; mixed of old and new; and many local artists. Love how neighborhood and cozy the area felt; and enjoyed the shopping!

“Lots of shops”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

If you're looking for some mom and pop stores or any antiques, this is another great area to visit. It's a long stretch but makes for a fun day to stroll around and pop into some shops. We met some great people as well - talk to the owner of Fleur De Lis and ask her about her time in Nepal. Amazing woman.
