Gorgeous homes. Did a walking tour and it was fun. You must get out of the French Quarter and see this stunning neighborhood!

Get a map from the tourism board and follow the route from Lafayette Cemetary through some of the most beautiful homes in the area. 24 to see and a little snippet of information.

Great neighborhood to see historic homes and lovely tree lined streets. Also check out Magazine Street when you are here.

The houses are beautiful. The streets quiet and well maintained. The shops are very nice. To get away from the busy French Quarter you need to enjoy the Garden District

Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,

We didn't use an app. Our hotel provided the info, giving a list for each street. It is easy to figure out.
