Gotta take the green line car and go see the garden district. For $2.50 one person can ride the whole route and back. Bountiful part of town.

The homes are beautiful but the tour was a bit boring. Overall it doesn’t seem as extensive as you’d think. If you’re going you should book brunch at Commander’s palace (we didn’t realize how close it was and wish we planned that).

We decided to take a drive through this district one afternoon. It's so beautiful! Doesn't take long if you have your own car. The homes are amazing. Very different from the French Quarter. If you love beautiful homes - this is a must see.

This beautiful section of New Orleans is where I always stay due to the flexibility of transportation offered by the streetcar to restaurants nearby. It is a quiet neighborhood away from the crowds on Bourbon Street and the French Quarter. For a reasonable $1.25 one-way...More

Our review should/could be higher, if we had planned better. We went solo without sufficient research so were at the mercy of a self guided "walking tour" on my cell phone. Better research would probably have moved this up our list of experiences.

This district has some beautiful streets with beautiful houses. It is a very relaxed neighborhood wirh a lot of vegetation. Each street has special old houses with beautiful architecture. A must when visiting New Orleans.

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.

The area is generally a safe residence area. Suggest "Lower Garden District", go to Magazine St, between Jackson Ave and Washington Ave. Great food eateries and shopping area. Washington St near Commodore Palace's is nice... More
