Royal Street in the French Quarter is one of the streets the city frequently closes to car traffic, because they issue permits to bands to set up and play right in the street. Really makes for a fun afternoon!

Crowded with tourists, homeless, musicians, crazies, dancers, mimes, horse drawn buggies, small curio shops, restaurants, bars, cars and policemen keeping their eye on everything wild. NOLA is an amazing city and this is the center of the universe. Go at least once in your lifetime...More

I loved this part of the French Quarter. This street is lined with amazing architecture, great Restaurants and Eye-Grabbing Galleries. I would highly recommend spending more time of your visit on Royal Street vs. Bourbon Street.

Cute street with great architecture and lots of places to stop and eat or do some shopping. This is a great place to stop in the French Quarter to get a feel for the area.

The two main streets in the Quarter are so different! If the madness of Bourbon Street is not your idea of fun, just walk one street over & stroll along Royal Street. It is, indeed, royal - lovely antique shops, beautiful art shops, excellent souvenir...More

This is a street to stroll along from one end to the other, window shopping the entire way. There are so many antiques and fine art shops that just entice you in for a closer look. In the end we walked away with a painting...More

A block off of Bourbon St, Royal St. has lovely architecture, shops, and dining. If Bourbon St. is too much for you, walk over to Royal Street.

The archecture was outstanding. The shops were wonderful as were the resturants. No shoe shine scams like Bourbon St and Barkers stopping you. The perfect street to walk and stop.

People focus too much on the hardships so closely
associated with this well known working class
neighborhood when what’s really most remarkable about
the tightknit community is its indefatigable spirit of
rebirth and ability to stay true to its roots. Perhaps
not an ideal destination for those visitors who tend
to keep well within their comfort zones when traveling
or those with bucket lists filled to the brim with top

It's 2 streets over from Jackson Square. How far it is depends on where you are starting from on Royal. They cross each other.
