A nice street if you are wanting to explore the french Quarter. Not a must but worth visiting once. A nicer option compared to Canal and Bourbon.

Royal street was a nice change of pace from hustle and bustle of Bourbon. There are some great shops and art galleries and restaurants. Highly recommend.

Royal street runs parallel with bourbon street. This is more of the artsy side of the French Quarter. Mostly antique and art stores. Better off staying on bourbon street if you are looking for a good time.

Hotel Monteleone is on Royal Street, along with numerous great shops, boutiques, galleries and restaurants/bars. Nice street to walk down when you need a break from Bourbon Street right next door.

If you love art this is the street in the French Quarter to check out. It's consider the most beautiful street in the French Quarter because of all the beautiful art work and sophisticated local designers.

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
