Royal Street was the location of Hotel Monteleone. We would walk out onto Royal everyday to begin our adventure. There are great shops and restaurants along this street.

We really enjoyed our afternoon strolls on Royal Street with several stops at art and antique shops along the way. Several street musicians filled the walk with music making for an enjoyable experience. Most of the antiques shops were very high end, but it was...More

Bourbon is full of bars, hard rock, etc. and no jazz. Royal is much quieter, full of shops, musicians (no rock) and makes a much pleasanter journey. Do this especially in the morning and avoid the smell of Bourbon St.

Beautiful street without the crazyness of Bourbon. Classy shops, nice hotels, great restaurants. This street is what NO is all about!

A street over from Burbon, but less congested and more classy. You'll find more restaurants without the party here. Its also a safe street to walk and explore.

Nice art shops and reasonable street music as you stroll the pedestrian section of the street. A little more sane than other parts of the quarter.

My favorite walk through area in the French Quarter. Each street in NOLA seems to have its very own character. Royal, think art, antiques, street music.

This was my favorite street to walk. It’s beautiful and I think the cleanest. Many fun and interesting shops along the way.

It is the window shopping version of Bourbon Street. Why? Because no one will ever be able to afford most of what is in the shops. High end retail. Walk up and down the strip all you want, even while avoiding mass amounts of tourists....More

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

Saint Ann Street is about a 25 minute walk from Royal Street. Right on N. Priest Street then left on Louis. Look for Royal Street from Louis.

The store hours vary by the type store. The bars and restaurants and other eating places were open late. I believe the drug store at Royal and Iberville was open late too. This store also had an assortment of foods and... More
