With few exceptions, the homes in the area are well kept with deep balconies that are very pretty. There are several restaurants in the area. Too bad there were not any shops. I would have enjoyed shopping in the area.

I took a walking tour through the Garden District and left wanting to move there immediately. It was beautiful. The history is wonderful and the trees are amazing. I would highly recommend taking a tour.

Recommend getting the streetcar up St Charles. It goes sufficiently slowly that you can have a good look at all the beautiful houses on the road.

Stunning homes and gardens. Love riding the streetcars. Much safer than French Quarter. Excellent restaurants.

Take the St Charles trolley and get off at Washington Street. Walk down Washington Street to the Lafayette Cemetary and then walk around the Garden District. We didn't have a map showing the specific houses - that would have helped. Found one after the fact...More

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give

The only company I know of that does Garden District rides is the Mid-City Carriage Company. Their number is 1-888-639-6040.

I didn't think so. Maybe so consignment but definitely no thrift stores.
