We skipped the tour and just gawked at the houses. It is a beautiful part of town and the houses are all grand and gorgeous. Recommend a hour walk around the neighborhood.

Beautiful residential neighborhood with amazing old mansions make for a very nice, leisurely stroll. Check out a restaurant on Magazine Street or try the famous Commander’s Palace (call for reservations). Across the street from Commander’s is Lafayette Cemetery which is free and open to the...More

We didn't have long here but arrived by Street car which was excellent value at 3 dollars a day. Beautiful scenery and lots to see though we missed some of it due to time constraints.

This area is really nice. Take a stroll around and check out the houses and gardens. Go down magazine st. Grab a bite at La Petite Grocery. You won't regret it.

Many of these beautifully-maintained homes are pre-Civil War. Wonderful, tree-shaded strolling and sightseeing. Easy walk to the French Quarter. Visited friends who live here.

Just a lovely area to take a stroll. I Road the street car from Lee Circle. Beautiful huge houses. You can see the Benjamin Button house and the boyhood home of the Manning boys. Stop for a bite at Commanders or tour the cemetery.

Definitely worth a drive or walk around! I preferred this over the French Quarter by far. Just riding the St. Charles St car is a nice unofficial tour. If you like old houses or architecture, it's a must see!

This neighborhood has it all. It’s so peaceful but very vibrant on the main avenues. The homes are gorgeous. I really love all the trees and the old southern feel. This is a must do while in the Big Easy. Take lots of pictures.
