Shopping in New Orleans

Magazine St. Shopping Offers Something for Everyone

Antique Shop on Magazine Street

 

 

For many, shopping is one of the chief aspects of travel. Various major cities have specific strips that are especially conducive to shopping, and New Orleans is no different. In this city, it’s Magazine St that is lined with shops with a wide range of goods and souvenirs that visitors can bring home with them.

Magazine St sets itself apart from Canal St and even parts of the French Quarter, which are lined with many tourist trap-type shops that sell typical New Orleans merchandise like graphic T-shirts, shot glasses and refrigerator magnets. While there are some other streets in the city that may rival Magazine, such as Royal St in the French Quarter which is famous for its shops and galleries, Magazine St Uptown truly stands on its own in terms of some of the finer aspects of New Orleans shopping.

Magazine St starts at the end of Audubon Park Uptown and curves and stretches all the way downtown to Canal St, where it turns into Decatur St. Decatur is another popular street for shopping, though as mentioned earlier, many of these shops are more for tourists looking for your typical travel souvenirs. read more »
