The Garden District has some beautiful homes and is a lovely place to walk. Old cemeteries, fantastic architecture and few quaint bars nearby.

The Garden District is just gorgeous. Take a day to stroll down the streets and view all the beautiful old mansions. Lots of small coffee shops and local shops hidden down the streets.

Take time to walk around and look at all the beautiful homes and gardens. It's a nice breather from the hustle and bustle of the quarter.

Great escape from the craziness of Bourbon Street. Worth your time to see the classic Southern architecture at its best.

Given the current heat - renting an e-bike from Buzz Bikes might prove more fun. They also offer multiple tours.
