Probably has the most concentrated consistently good restaurants in the city. The shops can be unique and interesting and the architecture is wonderful. A walk down Magazine will offer numerous opportunities for the hungry and thirsty.

The area is nice, but a lot of the homes off of Magazine Street are more appealing than the shopping area. We were not overly impressed with the shops, but oh well.

Just walk - for 3 miles of interesting places. Many small shops were closed on Sunday though. Plenty of places to eat were open.

My sister and I came for a birthday week. We stayed in an airbnb off of Magazine Street. It's a nice, safe area away from all the touristy areas. Magazine Street goes on forever! There are a ton of cute shops and restaurants and there are always people walking up and down Magazine Street.

By all means stay near Magazine Street if you are visiting NOLA. This advice was given to me prior to making my plans and now I know why! We stayed near Seventh Street and found that we loved returning after being out, elsewhere, all day. The shops, restaurants, safety....outstanding!

Did you know the Garden part was to counteract the smell of the slaughter houses? I didn't know that either.

The Garden District is an easy trolley ride from the French Quarter. The streets are lined with beautiful homes and mature trees. Magazine Street is a short walk. We loved all the quaint shops along Magazine and the many eating establishments. After an exhausting day walking Magazine we hopped on a trolley and did some sight seeing of the Garden... More

Very scenic street with lots of eateries and bars. I like it better than St Charles because there's more to look at.

After walking through the garden district we decided to check out some places on Magazine street. It was fun to relax and drink some local brews.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
