Want to put your finger on the pulse of New Orleans? Then sidestep the neon-hued drinks and hawkers of Rue Bourbon and explore Magazine Street. Here beats the heart of Uptown (the city's premier residential neighborhood), a 5-mile necklace strung with indie boutiques, world-class restaurants and art galleries galore. Po'boy joints, bars that don't close, high-end auction galleries and fine dining stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Victorian-trimmed shotgun houses and mom-and-pop shops.
