We were out walking, impatiently waiting for a Vietnamese place to open because I was dead set on having pho for late breakfast. For some reason I looked up and what I saw was the steeple of two churches facing off. Walked a couple blocks...More
We stumbled upon this church by reading about it in a local magazine and sought it out. Formerly a house of worship, but now a cultural center, the structure is amazing with frescoed ceilings, stained glass windows, and a lovely tile floor. The hours are...More
St. Alphonsus is a gorgeous former Catholic Church. Too costly to repair but too beautiful to tear down. Open during limited hours, it makes an interesting stop during a stay in New Orleans. I was amazed by the gorgeous fresco ceilings, the mosaic tiled floors,...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
yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
