Royal Street Shopping - NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana)

One block over from Bourbon Street is the French Quarter’s more refined and not a party place like its’ famous sister street. What Bourbon Street lacks, Royal Street tries to make up for. Here you will find a mix of antique shops, eclectic gift shops, old-school fine jewelry stores, art galleries and even an old- fashioned hat shop! You can also enjoy street music, as the musicians gather on the corners and all along the street. You will have a chance to listen to some of the best jazz, blues and other genres of music on the street while you gander. On certain days and hours, the city closes the street down to vehicles, so it makes it easier to get around. Also, other types of street people appear with everything from poem writing on a typewriter in the middle of the street to henna tattoos or tarot card readings! It is no wonder that tourists and locals alike love to go to Royal Street. Royal gives you the true NOLA experience. You will also love the historic architecture. Royal has some of the most gorgeous French-style buildings with iron balconies that date back from the 18th and 19th centuries. Royal runs for 13 blocks from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue. Don’t miss it, as it is one of the gems of the city! https://flipboard.com/@staceykaisler/new-orleans-8lsn3j2hz
