This area is a contrast to the French Quarter but just as memorable to visit. I love the architecture and the layout of this area. A must to visit.

Some absolutely fabulous mansions and houses in this area. See Julia Roberts' house, John Goodman and Archie Manning. Make sure you have a guide of some sort to explain about all the houses and then catch lunch at Commander's Palace

Taking a stroll through the garden district to check out the old houses is a must for your trip to New Orleans. Celebrity homes and beautiful, old trees make this worth the trip.

Challenging streets to walk as the tree roots from the protected oaks cause very uneven surfaces. That said, the old mansions ans the smaller shotgun houses are well worth a visit.

We visited in early December 2018, this is a beautiful neighborhood, with a whole range of historical colonial style mansions on display. The walk is pleasant around the neighborhood, many of the homes have descriptions on the gates and one can get by without an...More
