... if you love old "Mansion" homes and history, it's a "must see" area on your visit. I wish we had time to walk around the area, but we saw it from the trolley, since time was limited.

We went on a self-guided tour of the Garden District and loved it! The houses are beautiful, but one must be careful when walking because the sidewalks are in a losing battle with the tree roots.

We enjoyed a walking tour of some gorgeous homes in the Garden District during our visit last week.

Our guide, Nancy, was very informing and happy to... More

We took the Charles street car to the Garden District. It was an easy walk to the Layfette cemetery. We followed a walking tour of the homes.

They didn't have wheelchair ramps on most of the curbs of the sidewalks and wouldn't allow wheelchairs on the cable car in this area of town. I liked the area for the beautiful homes and gardens. Upscale and safe feeling.

We used our AAA book to see what was to see historically in the Garden District. We did a walking tour before leaving the city and it has great beauty.
