We drove around here for an hour or so rather than pay for a tour. Very interesting homes, each one unique. Saw Sandra Bullock's home. Many of the roads are awful, so driving around at night is not recommended, as your car could sustain major damage if you hit one of the huge potholes. Worth a visit!

Beautiful homes, nice to walk or drive around and look at the houses. There are also good restaurants. Lafayette cemetery is there. You can sign up for a group tour or just walk thru on your own if the gates are open.

Stayed in the Garden District. Walked a lot in the Garden District. Street after street of wonderful homes. Do yourself a favor and make sure you visit this area if in New Orleans.

Brilliant if you like good old southern architecture, full of wonderful old houses, beautiful gardens and a few NO characters thrown in.

If you have a morning free in New Orleans, be sure to go to the Garden District and take a stroll to look at the beautiful mansions that were built by wealthy American residents after the Louisiana Purchase. (They weren't fond of the hoi polloi near the Quarter.) I recommend buying a guide book with a walking tour, so you... More

Amazing homes with so many styles and ideas that if you're a house junkie, you might be overwhelmed. Some of the streets are in dire need of repair--prepare to drive carefully.

A must area to visit in NO. Take the trolley and hop on and off to see the sights. Well worth it. There are also some great restaurants in the area.

New Orleans attraction that can't be missed. District has retained its charm and brings you back in time to reminisce about genteel era.
