For shopping or just a casual stroll, no place in New Orleans is quite like Magazine Street, one of the city’s main thoroughfares. The six-mile-long stretch from the Garden District to Uptown, following the curving course of the Mississippi River, has some of the best antique stores, art galleries, craft shops and boutiques to be found anywhere in the city. Lined with mostly 19th-century buildings, including bright Victorian cottages trimmed in quirky gingerbread millwork, Magazine Street has the low-slung scale and mix of small stores — many with one-of-a-kind merchandise — that makes it an enduring hot spot for locals and visitors alike.
