Antiques, art and vintage items galore, the lighting store with chandeliers is a must see and the people at the Vintage store are awesome.

A street lined with antiques of unimagined quality. To browse is to watch history unfold.

We always browse Royal Street while visiting New Orleans---it's a fun place to see antiques and art. The streets are usually a place to catch some peformers singing or playing an instrument for a tip or two.

Walking up and down Royal and Chartres Streets was a highlight of my trip. We visited in December, so everything was beautifully lit with Christmas lights. Kind of magical!

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

It's 2 streets over from Jackson Square. How far it is depends on where you are starting from on Royal. They cross each other.

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
