So much history in this small area of town..Our tour guide was very informative about the homes, the iron rod fencing, the paint styles on the homes, the architectural influencial designs of the homes, how some homes still accomodates true gas...

close your eyes and you can hear the laughter of Rhett Butler and Madame Pearl coming from one of the upstairs windows.

The actual size of the Garden District is a miniscule 1/4 square mile (1/2 mile by 1/2 mile) but it seems much bigger because it continues into the contiguous Uptown District of New Orleans (also beautiful). The GC's historic, sprawling mansions and lovely gardens are a feast for the senses and should not be missed

I loved getting away from the tourists but and having a look around the Garden district, the architecture was truly amazing. The pavements could do with some work though, it's not very pushchair or wheel chair friendly in places.

There are lots of beautiful homes in the Garden District. You can do your own self guided walking tour, or you can hire a tour guide who has lots of history and will show you where some of the celebrities live when in New Orleans. There is so much history in this community and the Garden District is a place... More

The houses are all beautiful and you can pick out the historic ones as you go. Drop onto Magazine Street afterward for some lunch.

We took the St. Charles trolley to the Garden District to see the historic homes but we did not get off the trolley which was a mistake. We thought it went through the Garden District and it just goes along the edge. Big mistake! We were on a trolley for half a day because of construction tie-ups. We had to... More

I would suggest the Free Tours by Foot for this one (which includes a Tour of the Lafayette cemetery)! Saw some beautiful houses and a great variety of architecture throughout the neighborhood. Check out Commmander's Palace afterwards for lunch and those 25 cent martinis (limit 3 per customer)!
