After you stroll along Bourbon Street and want a less noisy and more upscale area, head to nearby Royal Street ("less noisy" does NOT mean quiet). The street is easier to navigate, and there is a great variety stores/items. The restaurants are no more expensive...More

The shops were very nice. Some of the prices were good and some were just outrageous. Entertainment along the street was nice!

If you're looking for anything special, check out this street. There are many shops / stores that I'm sure you'll find something you want. Just wish some more stayed open later.

A block and a world away from Bourbon Street. Wonderful shops...great antiques. Definitely worth the time ( 15 min. to hours) to walk and look in windows.

Wander this street from end to end. Make sure you read the historical plaques attached to buildings. All the streets in the French Quarter warrant attention for their own unique contribution, but give Royal St a little extra time.

Royal street has it all. Good shopping, antiques, food, and historic buildings. You can find just about anything there. And it feels safe.

Lots of art stores along this street. Carousel bar at hotel Monte lone which is always packed but worth checking out. Some days, bands set up on the street and perform in the afternoon - all extremely good and fun to watch while walking around.

Cleaner, not stinky, with interesting things to see. As "The Originals" fan had to visit The Hotel Royal. It was super cool to be there.

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

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
