    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Garden District, St Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70130-5968

    Catch a historic streetcar down St. Charles Ave and into the famous Garden District. See some of the best-preserved pre-Civil-War mansion in America and visit the wonderfully atmospheric Lafayette Cemetery No. 1. Finally, enter the Elms Mansion for a full tour of the inside.
