What a great little neighborhood! There is so much architecture and a lot of Mansions. Ii particularly like Prytania Street. At the advise of my concierge, I rented a bike and rode all the way to Audubon Park.

Had a lot of fun just walking about and exploring the Garden District. That was after riding the trolley through it the evening before, so we knew what to expect. Loved the beautiful old houses especially the balconies.

The Garden district is where you see some great historic homes - much more Southern Style which stands out from NOLA's unique French/Creole style. A fantastic place for a walk and a number of cute, if not overpriced and crowded bars, delis, etc. I might not put it at the top of the list of places to see if you... More

If you are into historic homes and amazing architecture you must take a tour (either on your own or with a tour guide) of this magnificent neighborhood. Each home is a true mansion, by every sense of the word. They are all meticulously maintained and have manicured lawns (hence earning the name back at the turn of the century of... More

Brighter, cleaner and more beautiful homes and businesses than the French Quarter. Take the trolley through the areas or an overview and then take a guided tour around the neighborhoods. Great shopping, restaurants, and parks, definitely a "must see" when visiting New Orleans.

My girlfriend and I went on Saturday morning to a Garden District tour. At the garden district you can see a lot of old-classic French designs. It was very interesting and I think it will be a fun experience for everybody.
