I visited the Garden District with a tour guide which made it much more interesting. St. Charles streetcar made it a very easy trip from the French Quarter. Wonderful area to visit while in New Orleans

The homes are very beautiful and most are well kept, the same cannot be said of the streets however. Many homes had signs in the yards saying "fix my street". The city really needs to fix the streets there and in the French Quarter.

We enjoyed a bike ride through the Garden District...lovely houses and flat streets make for a pleasant afternoon break from the frenetic activities of the Quarter.

Great way to see the mansions of the Garden District. Beautiful southern architecture. The street car goes slowly enough to see the sights. Anne Rice, the author, has a home there.

a Grey Line or trolley tour is a great way to see the Garden District. The homes are stunning; the history of the 2 sections of the city (French Quarter and Garden District) is very interesting

Met our Free walking tours guide by cemetery and new in 1st few minutes that it was a great decision. Low key, informative, enjoyable. So many styles of architecture to enjoy. Glad we had tour guide to point out the features as we would have missed a lot without a tour. Booking tour was easy on their website too. So... More
