The garden District in New Orleans is a must see when in town. The homes are quite beautiful. There are numerous shops and restaurants to visit. Just stop in and look around. You won't be disappointment!
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.
Took a self guided walking tour I found online. Save your $ and do same. Very easy to get around on your own. Cemetery closes at 3:30 so plan well.
And use the restroom before you go! This is a residential area and there are...More
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.

Very good information regarding Garden District and Lafayette Cemetery tours are available at freetoursbyfoot. They offer guided tours but also information regarding self-guided tours including printable map- if you don't need all the details using their self-guided tour is a great way to go as you can wander the neighborhood at your pace. You should eat at Commander's Palace and you will need reservations. A bit less formal at lunch which may fit well into your plans for a day visit to the garden district. The restaurant is in the heart of the Garden District across the street from Lafayette Cemetery. If you are staying near the French Quarter you can hop on the St. Charles Streetcar at Canal Street (though temporary road construction may require a bus bridge to the Lee Circle).
