Walked to the garden district from my hotel. Enjoyed looking at the houses on the way there, and back. Shopping was enjoyable, stopped by a few antique stores. Only drawback was there was not a restroom in one of the antique stores!

There is a free walking tour brochure at the visitor centers so that you don't have to pay for a guide. The Lafayette cemetery is very interesting. Both this district and the French Quarter are major filming locations for NCIS New Orleans, and we saw...More

This area is a contrast to the French Quarter but just as memorable to visit. I love the architecture and the layout of this area. A must to visit.

Some absolutely fabulous mansions and houses in this area. See Julia Roberts' house, John Goodman and Archie Manning. Make sure you have a guide of some sort to explain about all the houses and then catch lunch at Commander's Palace

Taking a stroll through the garden district to check out the old houses is a must for your trip to New Orleans. Celebrity homes and beautiful, old trees make this worth the trip.

We combined the online Garden District tour and the online tour of the cemetery that is across from Commander's Palace. It's not the greatest cemetery, but was still interesting. We also had dinner at Commander's Palace on... More
