The houses here are gorgeous, there is a typical Louisiana cemetery--above ground--and a nice area, Magazine Street, with interesting local artist galleries and shopping.

Did St. Charles Avenue three times! The antebellum mansions are breathtaking. Takes you back a couple hundred years. Keep an eye out for Anne Rice's childhood home, one of the nicest on St. Charles.

Commander’s Palace in the Garden District has free maps in their entry way. They give a walking route to take and have a brief summary of the important addresses. It was very good.
