We went there with the street car, line Charles and walked around. Lovely old houses, very big green trees and nice shops on Magazine street. You can also grab the walking tour suggested by Commander's palace and either enjoy your time while waiting to eat there or having a pleasant walk after a great lunch!

Do yourself a favor and take a tour around this lovely area. Go to Clancy's for dinner on Anunccion (sp?) street, and stroll up and down the sidewalks. Truly lovely.

It's like the South of Gone With the Wind. You can't imagine who owns these stately homes and manicured lawns. Just look down as you walk and stop to look up. The sidewalsk in New Orleans are a mess and you will be on the ground before you know it! Guided tours are great and offered all over the city.

Get online and walk First Street, Third Street and Prytania Street to see truly magnificent New Orleans Historic houses. We spent about three hours and then ended up on the main street where the food was awaiting us. This was a no cost morning which was so enjoyable.

No need to have a guide unless you are in to the detail of the history behind the homes. Our hotel provided a brief overview brochure that was easy to follow. Buy a day pass on the tram for $3 to get you there. Consider booking lunch at Commander's Palace but remember that a collar is required for men.

visited granddaughter and loved this area for many reasons: near great restaurants, the zoo, streetcar. Dinner at the Maple Street Cafe was delightful and also Superior Grille was fun as we hosted some of her friends.

Take the St. Charles trolley to Washington Street, carry your Frommer's guidebook and give yourself a tour of the Garden District. It was wonderful to get some history behind the incredible houses in the district as we strolled along. A human guide might have given us a little more information, but we were delighted with our DIY tour.

After a wonderful lunch at Commander's Palace (reservations necessary) we strolled through the cemetary reading the nameplates, walked and marveled at the preserved homes and happily noted the come back after Katrina.

The Garden District has a wonderful collection of old houses. It is a nice place to stroll on a pleasant autumn day. To get there we took the St. Charles streetcar which sets the mood for a trip back to the past.
