We took the St. Charles streetcar here ($1.25 exact change only) and enjoyed the trip through downtown. Once we reached the garden district the street opened into a stunning wide avenue lined with huge old trees and Spanish moss. We hopped off at 3rd and did a little walking tour (found on this site: http://www.gonola.com/2013/07/23/icons-of-new-orleans-architecture-garden-district-houses.html) through some of the grandest...

Beautiful homes. Some are in better shape than others. Stay away from the tour leaving from the bookshop! It was terrible! Stood 45 min in the sun (got a sunburn) to hear in incorrect historical facts and a few offensive religious comments.

Our hotel (Prytania Park) was in this area and we loved it. Great variety of places to see, visit and eat. If you like pizza, you definitely need to try the pizza place called Slice. It was really good.

It was worth taking a walk through the area. Some of it looks a little run down but beautiful homes.

I was expecting a lot more, these homes could look beautiful if the owners would just take care of them.

I renovated an old house there in the 90' great neighborhood. A lot of history. worth taking a visit thru while you are shopping on Magazine St or riding the St Charles streetcar. Look for the 3 house painted Mardi Gras colors on Euterpe St.

This is more of a driving or walking tour. The homes are gorgeous and we always take our guest over to sight-see.

Something you can"t see anywhere else - the different styles of housing is very unique and many are very ornate. This has always been a beautiful part of town, especially in the spring with all the azaelas in bloom.
