Worth the time to see the beautiful neighborhood. We took train just outside of Quarter and its worth it - you can get off visit one of the restaurants, bar, stores or beautiful park and just get back on.

It's a great place to wander around the streets and appreciate the architecture. I really enjoyed the unique and beautiful wrought iron fences. It's easy to access from the French Quarter (15 min) if you are staying in this area. If you take the bus or trolley, get off at Washington and turn left into the Garden District.

We stayed in an AirBnB rental and loved walking in the neighborhood. Architecture is wonderful, as are the gardens.

Even in the rain - this is a don't miss location! Walked around on our own - next time I think it would be better to spend the few dollars and go on an organized walking tour. Beautiful area - interesting architecture, fences and gardens!

The Garden District is a trendy chic area of Nola. We found great shops and good food. Try Rum House and Ignatius! Took the city bus from Magazine and Poydras. Great way to see all the cute houses and shops that line Magazine Street. I personally like this area better than Bourbon Street area!

Probably could have taken a tour, but just wanted to see the so-called Garden District. There are many beautiful old homes, mansions, etc. Many have big flower gardens, winding drives, unique wrought iron fences. The Civil War, War of 1812, the French and Indian War, etc all come to life. It was interesting to see. Didn't see Archie Manning or... More

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.

Such a beautiful neighbourhood. We went there with a pedicab and she knew everything about the houses and neighbourhood. it's a great way to explore the city, with some very long distances between neighbourhoods.
