The homes in the garden district was very nice. My wife and I did a self guided tour of the district. Some of the homes recommended for viewing have changed recently. So, check in at the coffeehouse first to get an updated map.

Very different scenery and atmosphere from the French Quarter! Go, wander and get lost around the green streets, looking at the amazing mansions. The cemetery deserves a stop and visit as well.

The Garden District is renowned in guide books and well worth a visit. You can take a street car, which is great fun but it's nice to get out and walk. This is especially lovely in the spring when everything is in bloom but any time of year it's a great walk through beautiful old neighborhoods. There are plenty of... More

I took the trolley to Washington and did the self guided walking tour of the Garden District. I can spend all day walking around and looking at beautiful buildings. I was amazed at the grandeur of some of the homes and then amazed at how small some of the lots were. Those homes with lots the size of the block... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to be in New Orleans on December 13-14, 2014 which happened to be the weekend of the Garden Home Holiday Tour. We were able to order tickets online ($40.00/person) and we received them well in advance of our trip. We were able to take the streetcar to the Garden District (St. Charles Line)... More

Take the St. Charles Streetcar and just ride it to the end and back. A delightful journey. You can also take the bus to Magazine street and do some fun power shopping.

Easy to get to. Safe area to walk. Lovely houses to appreciate. We had a good breakfast at a local joint. Well worth the side trip.
