Amazing home and gardens outside of downtown New Orleans. This is a one-of-a-kind stately home - built by the Sterns family, the wife was heiress to the Sears fortune. One of the only homes in NO to have a basement - and when built -...More
Beautifully decorated for the holidays. We loved the real Star Gazer Lilly ornaments on the Christmas tree! Tess was our wonderful tour guide of the estate. We enjoyed having the gardens all to ourselves to stroll through leisurely after the guided tour of the house....More
Beautiful, well kept mansion and grounds. Well worth the time to visit. The staff was very pleasant, articulate, and helpful. The house also has a nice history about it and the stall are willing to tell their story.
If you don’t have time to drive to the plantations that dot River Road on both sides of the Mississippi River, then I highly suggest you see Longue View. It’s just a short Uber or cab ride from the French Quarter and is well worth...More
The Gardens are beautiful and well maintained. The Children's garden was adorable and my kids absolutely loved it. The staff was slightly rude and almost put out that we came to visit (they were preparing for what looked like a reception), but we still really...More
In spite of having visited New Orleans steadily for over 30 years, I had never heard of this place: perhaps I had been touring a few too many plantation on the outskirts of NOLA! Regardless of this oversight, my companion and I thoroughly enjoyed the...More
Our group was so big that it was too crowded to see half the rooms and try to catch up with the tour guide after you finally got a turn to see everything. The gardens are very informative which is cool but meant for kids....More

Also, Longview Gardens, while on the Metairie Bus, is on the Left side of Metairie Road as you approach the Canal, and you can see the Road that is the Entry into the Long View Mansion. Be certain the bus driver knows where you are trying to go and he will cooperate.
We got a 2 day Powerpass ( I read they are not always the best deal but we already purchased it earlier with a Groupon) and we want to get the most bang for or buck. We are 4 adults. We are staying in the middle of town at The Drury. We do not have a car but plan to Uber as needed. We are not into Museums so of all the things on the PowerPass what would you recommend-we have never been to New Orleans and these are our options: Attractions Offered With Power Pass ● 1850 House | Louisiana...More

Swamp Tour, Pharmacy Museum, Plantation, Haunted History Tour are all great. You won't need a car anywhere within the quarter... only to get to the plantation and swamp, but the tours usually provide transport. We did a combo swamp and plantation tour but I don't know if that's included with your pass. Definitely do the paddleboat cruise down the Mississippi too... but don't do the dinner package if you can avoid it. There's so many better places to eat in the quarter and in Garden District,...More
