oh, the wonderful homes, we visited Loyola and Tulane which are next to each other. Rode the streetcar and it was easy. Also visited the cemetery and got a quick tour from a guy who works for tips and has lots of knowledge and explains the vaults.

There are no public bathrooms, and only one restaurant that requires a dress code, but walking through the neighborhood and viewing the architecture was nice

Jump off and explore the magnificent homes and you will feel transported to a different time. New Orleans, the Garden District and the Streetcar should be enjoyed at a leisurely pace.

We had the pleasure of visiting the Garden District when the owner of our B&B took us on a personal tour. He has been in NOLA for about 30 years and knew the history of pretty much every home (even down to details of fences around some of the homes). It's just an absolute beautiful area and well worth the... More
