NOLA is much more than the French Quarter. There are beautiful places, like the Garden District, that speak "history". Take the CajunEncounters.com "City/Cemetery Tour" that will take/show you the French Quarter, Ninth ward, City Park, Garden District, etc.,with very knowledgeable tour guide in a small bus!

We road the street cars and got off and walked around the neighborhood looking at all the gorgeous houses. So beautiful and shows an era of time sometimes forgotten. Also a good learning experience for kids to see something outside of the normal subdivision houses.

My favorite thing to do every time I visit New Orleans is to either take the street car of drive down St. Charles Avenue. Might be the best collections of mansion on one street in the USA.

It was about a 45-minute guided walking tour of the garden district that was included in our Hop On Hop Off bus tour. It was great little tour stopping at some of the most famous mansions in the garden district ending at the Lafayette Cemetary which you can tour own

Oh it's so beautiful here! I could've easily spent a day just looking at the houses and details. If you're not remotely into architecture or admire houses then this probably won't appeal to you. If you are though it's so wonderful! Sela is going on right now so we took the bus for most and then the street car for... More

A trip to New Orleans is not complete without a visit to the Garden District. Historic New Orleans Tours does a terrific tour. My guide Tim was superb. The Gray Line Tour is also good -- Mary is a hoot! Or, tour on your own. There are many online guides to the homes. Beautiful in the spring. Take your camera... More

I visited the Garden District on my morning run, running on St. Charles where the old street car track was now a running and walking path. While that street had some older homes, I ran back along Prytania and felt it had many more historic homes with the classic architecture of New Orleans. I felt very safe running there alone,...

Very pretty. It's just houses, but if you love the style, architecture, and lush greenery, it's worth driving or strolling through.

I love historical landmarks, and homes that visually transport me to times past. And if you do as well you will LOVE the Garden District! The homes are breathtaking, and the walk through the district is as well. So be prepared for the heat and the humidity. A drive through is recommended for the summer months, but if you can... More
