Magazine Street in New Orleans is one of the south’s most recognized thoroughfares, dating back to the early days of the expansion of the city beyond the original French Quarter.
Magazine Street features six miles of a distinctly unique flair. Visually the street offers an abundance of historic buildings from mansions, now housing elegant bed & breakfasts or single-family homes; to Victorian row houses, some residential, some art galleries, some local shops; to a renovated bus barn, converted to a neighborhood grocery.
Magazine Street is Main Street USA in true New Orleans style, offering an array of experiences with incredible flavor. While you will find a few national brands, locally owned is the norm. Unique boutiques, top chefs, art studios and markets have been popping up along this exceptional thoroughfare since the early days of New Orleans.
