I love this street because it has so many unique shops all on one street. Lots of antique shops but also boutique shops with merchandise you really don't see anywhere else.
After the daylight transformation of the French Quarter, it can be a nice place to walk during the day, too. There are some decent hotels on Royal Street and you can take it all the way out of the Quarter. We enjoyed the convenience of staying on Royal St and then just walking right over to Bourbon.
Royal Street is not what it used to be. True, the ubiquitous t-shirt shops are not as tacky as much of the French Quarter these days, but I only go there for dining and limited shopping.
I think this is the most charming street in the area. There are so many unique shops to visit. I didn't buy anything but spent an hour just strolling in and out of shops.

Royal Street is a great place to stroll and shop. Lots of shops from cooking shops, knick/knacks to some awesome antique and art stores. Something for everyone to see/enjoy. Plans to take your time...you don't want to miss anything!
Royal Street has to have more antique dealers in a few blocks than anywhere else in America. And the quality is all very high. Some specialize (one old favorite is no longer there - the Toy Soldier Shop). All are fairly premium price but all haggle. So expect to haggle. A LOT. Be sure to stop by Bevelo Light Fixtures....

DO NOT miss this street. Spend the day walking, window shopping, listening to street music, and eating!
Royal street is one shop after another which is great if you are a shopper! It has some wonderful boutiques. As you walk further down from Canal Street there are some many art galleries.
Of course, if you go to NOLA, you have to visit Royal Street. They have a ton of great local shops that sell anything from regional foods to handmade art. Bring comfortable walking shoes and have at it!
