One of my favorites in NO. Nice shops and cafes. Better shops than you'd see on some other streets, not just beads and t-shirts.

A great place to walk around. Plenty of antique shops and gallery shops. Street musicians really add to the pleasure of strolling down this street.

A beautiful street. The architecture was amazing, iron cast balcony's on every shotgun house of every colour. The street performers were incredible; jazz bands, drummers, gymnasts. Something different everyday.

"Not all those who wander are not lost." - Tolkien. I wandered in the French Quarter just being open to how I was lead earlier in the day (around noon) down Royal Street. Interestingly, I was drawn back to Royal Street and sat at the steps of the Louisiana Supreme Court Steps while being serenaded by an exceptional violinist. Facing... More

you can do a lot of people watching, art shopping and some antiquing. It is just one block over from Bourbon St, but it feel a world away.

head to Royal Street to walk, shop and eat. Check out hotel lobbies for when you come back after you win the lottery. Read the menus and stroll through a lovely afternoon making roon for make room for food and drink to come.

In the French Quarter, Bourbon is the tourist street, Chartres is the restaurant street and Royal is the street to stroll if you want to view art and visit some funky shops. The variety of art is outstanding and there are usually some street performers providing great music. I hit Royal every visit because the galleries constantly change exhibits.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
