Catch the St. Charles streetcar at Canal St. Buy the all day pass for $3. Enjoy the ride as you pass the beautiful Garden District neighborhood. With the windows wide open the air blows through the car making for a tranquil experience. Don't get off 'til you get to Carrollton Street (where the car makes a right turn). You are... More

We followed a self-guided tour I found online that meandered through this picturesque neighborhood. Well worth the visit.

We tried to see the Garden District two ways: using the St Charles Tram, and a visitor tour. Both had the same problem: YOU CANNOT GO ON THE SIDE STREETS. Sure you can see Sandra Bullock's manse, and some others, bet darn, we wanted more. Rent a bike.

The trolleys did not run on schedule. They were over crowded and had to turn us away. We ended up driving through this area instead. Disappointed in the public transportation. We visited the cemetery in the heart of the garden district. It was very poorly taken care of.

Great area and some nice places to eat or drink coffee. We took the walking tour which included pointing out the different star's houses; as well as the cemetery. Great place to eat in this area is the Commander's Palace. Nice lunch and inexpensive!

The place is beautiful, what more can you say. The houses are wonderful. Everyone is walking from coffeehouse to cafe. It would be great to live there.

Whether escorted or self guided spend a couple of hours on a less than 90/90 day, and learn a lot. A good guide will place the area in history and introduce the reasons why NOLA was settled.

It is a much better stroll than the French Quarter and relish a little alone time. Take a ten minute trolley ride and you are there. Sample some of the small, quaint boutique hotels along St. Charles Street. The building styles are antebellum and incredibly detailed. The mahogany interiors of some of the buildings are incomparable. They just don't build... More

We rented bikes near the Hyatt hotel, road down to the Garden District. The homes are amazing. We stumbled across and area they call the Irish Channel or something like that along Magazine Street with a great mix of food and shops that feels much more up to date / foodie than the french quarter.
