We took a walking tour of a small area of the Garden District. The area is like a hidden retreat away from the hustle and bustle of downtown New Orleans. There are small shops on the streets and the residents take pride in how well-kept...More

The Garden District is a great escape from the French Quarter. Great neighborhoods with beautiful homes, local shops and restaurants. Take the trolley for the complete experience.

Definitely worth a stroll around to see the grand houses and get a taste of "old" New Orleans. Very easy to get to from the streetcar.

Commander’s Palace in the Garden District has free maps in their entry way. They give a walking route to take and have a brief summary of the important addresses. It was very good.
