It is a very peaceful part of the city. A great escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown. The homes in the garden district are picture perfect. I want to live here! I would consider staying in a bed and breakfast here on my...More

We wondered around trying to follow a selfguided tour we found online. It might be worth it to go on a guided tour with a guide knowledgeable about the area. I would have liked to have learned more about the architecture. It is worth visiting.

Tired of the noise and flash of Bourbon Street? The Garden District is a nice break from those boozy revellers. This is more neighborhood, with large mansions & shady trees. A streetcar line takes you to the neighborhood, which still has its fair share of...More

Looked up our tourist map and caught a streetcar to the Garden District. Once again it was very distinct and quite different from other areas of New Orleans we had visited. We saw lots of lovely homes and many excellent boutiques. We were able to...More

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give

We didn't use an app. Our hotel provided the info, giving a list for each street. It is easy to figure out.
