Compared to Burbon Street, The Garden District is very clean and well kept. Everything is very clean, and no trash.

This area is incredible. The houses are magnificent with beautiful yards. There is a mix of homes and churches, and every building has its own character that adds to the whole feel to the neighbourhood.

This is such a beautiful area. The houses are grand as in the old movies. The trees are very old and majestic. A lot of the houses are decorated for halloween like I've never seen before. Must see area.

Beautiful place to just wonder around and look at the centuries old houses. Pay for a walking tour and you'll get to see Hollywood stars, such as Sandra Bullock and Nicholas Cage's houses. It's great!

We took the street car to the west end of the Garden district and just walked around for a couple of hours. In hindsight, we should have taken one of the many available tours. Fascinating houses! Visit the cemetery in the center.

Guided tours are not necessary to enjoy the beauty and splendor of the Garden District. Homes are renovated and preserved to show their original charm. Grounds are lovingly kept to enhance the architecture with lush landscapes.
