Catch a cab or the No. 11 bus (a one-day Jazzy Pass is just $3 and lets you get on and off as much as you want) to Magazine Street to explore one of the city's more unusual retail scenes. Bohemian and upscale apparel shops stand among art galleries, antiques stores and restaurants in quaint, funky and historic buildings. Browse the shops. Indulge your sweet tooth at Sucre, with its irresistible selection of pastries, chocolates and specialty macaroons (3025 Magazine St., 504-520-8311; magazinestreet.com).
