The Garden District homes are amazing all by themselves, but we also got to see how beautifully they decorate at Christmas time.

We scheduled a tour of the Garden District with Judy. So glad that we did it because she was able to give us the history behind all of the beautiful homes. If you cannot book a tour, it is still worth visiting and walking around.

A must see when in New Orleans!!! The homes are simply stunning! Well kept beautiful to see! Just be mindful of your steps as sidewalks are a bit bumpy!

Amazing to see those houses full of history and architecture being used today as a home for many people... It is fancy and very well conserved!

Took a walking tour and learned many things about the development of New Orleans. Explanation of the cemetery was interesting due to land elevation and temperature in the summer. People you know live in some of the homes, and others have been used for movies.

Visiting the Garden District to see the beautiful homes was delightful on this sunny warm January day. A tour around the cemetery with a guide who worked only for tips was informative. Magazine Street had lots of galleries displaying bright colorful paintings.

We had a walking tour here as part of our 3-day pass on the Hop-on/Hop-off buses. This neighborhood was created much later than the French Quarter. We saw houses now owned by Sandra Bullock and John Goodman.

We combined the online Garden District tour and the online tour of the cemetery that is across from Commander's Palace. It's not the greatest cemetery, but was still interesting. We also had dinner at Commander's Palace on... More
