Great place to walk and watch the historic buildings. Take a tour to learn more about the history of the houses. Great restaurants around.

We drove around the Garden District while in NOLA. It had alot of large stately homes but nothing over the top. Being from St Louis it was very similar to what I would see here. Not all that impressed.

One of the most beautiful places in New Orleans. The mansions and their gardens are a real beauty. Definitely do a walking tour of this place. Wear good walking shoes and be alert to all the ups and downs on the sidewalks!

Perhaps the French Quarter gets most of the ink, but on the other side of Canal St. and only 15-20 minutes on foot lies the Garden District with it's big homes set in, mostly, nicely manicured, mature gardens. This area, too, feels like you're stepping back in time…to someplace slower. A nice walk is from Canal St. thru this district... More

The Garden District is the most beautiful part of New Orleans. You can find many self guided tours on the internet. Unfortunately you can't go into any of the hours because they are mostly condos and apartment buildings. There is a guided tour that leaves from the book shop every day and you can see where all the stars live.

The trip on the St. Charles streetcar takes about two hours and is slow. It gives you ample time to see the many old houses along the way. At the end of the line you can get off and stroll about.

Walking thru the area I enjoyed all the iron gates and fences along with the well manicured lawns and homes. Such a beautiful area to highlight the English area of New Orleans. I suggest going during the week when it is very quite on the streets.

We went to the Garden District to sightsee but were happy to find some great shopping and many places to eat or have coffee.
