Self Guided Tours of the Garden District and Cemetary?

Trying to decide if we can do our own tour of the Garden District or if we'd be better to join a walking tour? I'm sure we can walk through ourselves, but we wouldn't necessarily know what we're seeing. Is there anywhere where we can get info to do a tour ourselves?

Also, what are some good restaurants in the area? "Good" meaning some real NOLA food - not necessarily upscale, can be a good local diner.

We used our Fodor's book. It will list excellent restaurants near the GD.

On Monday-Friday, Commander's Palace offers a $16-20 lunch special with .25 martinis....you might enjoy that before your walking tour...there is a dress code, no shorts, tanks, etc. but casual slacks/dockers, nice golf shirt, skirt, etc. are fine.

I suggest taking a tour with Haunted History Tours. My family took this tour a couple of years ago and it was excellent. IMO would be much better than reading something myself.
