The St. Charles street car was on limited service when we visited but is soon to be repaired, riding the streetcar up and down St Charles is a great opportunity to view the historic mansions.

Drove the area and took in the great mansions. Some parts a little seedy. Cemetaries close by with interesting tombs.

During our recent vacation to New Orleans, my boyfriend and I visited the Garden District. We were staying in the French Quarter and decided to take the public bus from Canal Street to Washington Street in the Garden District. It is difficult to find adequate words to describe the homes here. We found a self-guided walking tour on our mobile phone and enjoyed an afternoon wandering the streets and taking in the beautiful architecture. Our walking tour ended at the famous Lafayette Cemetery. Don't forget to take your camera with you on this adventure.

The Garden District in New Orleans is a truly special place and it is well worth the time. Spend the time learning something about the history of the French, the Spanish, the African's and the Irish and the American's to better understand the gumbo of New Orleans history. We do feel sorry for the fortunate people who live in the district. All the tourists in front of their homes all day must get old.
