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

St. Louis #1 is a popular one. You need to be part of a licensed tour to get in. But DO NOT MISS Metairie Cemetery. It is absolutely beautiful and full of history.
