Royal Street
Bourbon Street may be better known than Royal Street, but its neighbor one block over has just as long a history: Both were part of the original 1720 plan of the city. The street is lined with the typical French Quarter 18th and 19th century buildings with wrought iron balconies. Today, many house galleries and antique stores. On the street itself, however, the air is often filled with music.

“There are many famous clubs and other venues where you can hear music performed in New Orleans,” says Ben about one of his favorite streets in the city, “but some of the best musicians in the world can be found in Jackson Square and up and down Royal Street. For just the price of tipping the band, you can have one of the most beautiful, musical experiences ever.”
