Part of the French Quarter . Have to just walk up and down, stop in any place when you need refreshing. Like this better than Bourbon, jump into any line if it comes down.

This is a lityle quieter then some of the streets, one night they had a semi private function on in the street, that gave charachter and interest. Not a hit with me.

Yeah, this was definitely a lot more quiet/relaxed than Bourbon Street. Yet, still very fun and entertaining ! Great atmosphere.

We made a reservation for The Court of the Two Sisters and we walked the length of the street while waiting for our jazz brunch reservation time - iconic street scene with balconies and gas lights

If you want some feel of New Orleans without the blaring rock music and street smells, take a stroll down Royal. There are restaurants as well an antique, clothing, and art shops along the way.

The tours are a great way to see and learn about the history of the city, We took the ghost and cemetery tours and both were awesome.The heat made both difficult, especially the cemetery tour since it was during the afternoon.

Great street for unique shopping and usually tremendous street musicians in the afternoon. Do Bourbon once and then enjoy the civility of Royal!

Although Bourbon Street has a lot of hype, Royal Street had lots of musicians and entertainers on the street performing for people. This is a wonderful street to walk any time of day or night.

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

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.
