About New Orleans, LA Shopping
Visitors in need of retail therapy will find New Orleans to be a great place to shop, especially for collectors. Start with Magazine Street in the Garden District, where the charming 19th-century buildings offer a mix of cafés and noteworthy boutiques. In the Quarter, there's Royal Street, where high-end galleries and antique shops share blocks with merchants who peddle vintage duds, artisan jewelry, pralines and just about anything else you can imagine. Although it's mostly known for its made in China souvenirs and cheap sunglasses the French Market is always a lively stop. Founded in 1791, it is the oldest continuously-running public market in the United States. Here, along the New Orleans riverfront, you'll find plenty of opportunities for shopping, dining and even entertainment. If mainstream wares are more your speed, there's the Riverwalk Marketplace, newly expanded with upmarket outlet shops and the Shops at Canal Place, both of which feature a bevy of brand name retailers.
