New Orleans Garden District
Welcome to the Garden District, one of New Orleans' most desired neighborhoods, filled with gorgeous 19th-century villas. This charming district will greet you with oak-shaded streets and a diverse mix of homes from cottages to mansions, plus, of course, plenty of lavish gardens to boot
Stroll through the district and see various mansions, boutiques and antique shops, fine-dining restaurants, cafes, and bars. Take a ride on the iconic St. Charles Streetcar, tour local neighborhood universities, and make a stop at one of the city's most popular attractions, the Audubon Nature Institute. Shop on Magazine Street, eat at Commander's Palace (dress code enforced) and explore the legends of Lafayette Cemetery #1, filled with ornate 19th-century tombs. To fully explore the neighborhood we suggest you take a walking tour with Free Tours by Foot, a 2-hour walking tour filled with history, interesting stories, and local legends.
