Royal Street is the place to visit for antiques and the unique! From silver items to jewelry, art work, knicknacks and even crystal chandeliers! I think there is something for everyone and budget!

It's a very nice and cosy street in the heart of NOLA downtown. A lot of antiques shops and local cuisine. The architecture is very nice giving a French look to the entire avenue.

Art galleries and antique shops line the street and some of the best restaurants can be found on Royal as well. My favorite street in New Orleans.

Compared with Bourbon Street this is much classier. There are many art shops and some restaurants as well as kitchen shops and antique shops.

This street is in the centre of The French Quarter of New Orleans. It is parallel to The main Bourbon street. It is an attractive street, with a good class of shops and restaurants.

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

It seemed like the higher end stores closed later. But lots of gift shops stay open fairly late. It's very lively and full of people every weekend so you will find stores open. Just not sure about the higher end antique... More
