This was with Grayline, and the tour guide was Marcia. It was a 2 hour walking tour of the beautiful garden district, with gorgeous homes and lots of history. She was a great guide, full of knowledge and a sense of humor. We were able to see inside one of the homes, but walking around in itself is a treat.... More

Take the St Charles streetcar to Lafayette cemetery and walk around those beautiful big houses. If you have to go back to the French quarter afterwards, walk down or take the bus down Magazine street, which is very interesting with cool shops!

We rode through the Garden District on two different days with the Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour three-day pass which we would definitely suggest if you have the time. The tour guide on the bus points out places of interest and houses of importance. We enjoyed our walking tour of the Garden District on our third day and toured... More

The homes in this small square are awe-inspiring. We took the self-guided tour listed on freetoursbyfoot and were thrilled with the buildings and the history. Most homes on the tour had plaques so we could read additional information. But this is a residential area, so you will see children in their front yards and pets strolling about. We spoke to...

We drove to the Garden District on Saturday afternoon, February 11. We easily found a place to park on St. Charles Street, and we walked around a few blocks enjoying the historical and well-kept houses there. We were just a few weeks before Mardi-Gras, so the houses were decorated in ribbons and beads of the traditional colors. We were disappointed... More

We rode the trolley through when it rained and we couldn't walk around outside. That was enough of a view for me. Pretty old homes. I don't know if there is any more to it or not.

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
