Royal Street runs nearby the infamous Bourbon Street, but it's no less fun. With bars, gift shops and restaurants lining its sidewalks Royal Street offers you the same culture as its famous sibling with half the crowd.

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
