Went on a walking tour of the area and seeing the mansions (including the homes of a few celebrities!) was very interesting!

Many people claim to have visited the garden district because they road the St Charles street trolley through the district. We recommend you buy the day pass for the trolley and get off at about Washington Street and walk the next ten blocks or so. You might also visit the Lafayette cemetery on Washington Street and also eat at the... More

Very surpised how close it was and how easy it was just to venture out. We just got off the bus and started walking around. Great way to see it.

Wonderful walking tour checking out the graveyard and then off to see the incredible houses in the area such as Sandra Bullock's place. Incredible that house prices are so cheap. Sidewalks are very uneven so be careful walking!!

It's a neighborhood, just like yours or mine. kids toys in the yard, people coming and going etc. It just happens to have some wonderfully historic homes and great sites to see from movies etc. Magazine street is up and coming w/ great food and shops.

aqua blue--to confuse mosquitoes! Beautiful old homes. A peek into the antebellum South. We took the trolley past Audubon Park and Tulane. Wonder afternoon excursion.

For first time NOLA visitors, this should be seriously considered for places to stay and eat. The French Quarter is another world, but can get quite touristy. You'll be glad to stay at the Garden District for the quiet come time to catch a wink. We walked to the quarter ( ~ 2 miles) or you can always catch the... More

Along with my daughter we loved so much this area that we came back three times to walk and visit during the day and another 3 in the evening for some of the best restaurants in there. We even took a cemetery and the neighbourhood tour. The main street with old vintage shops is called Magazine Street but our favourite... More

... 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.
