Taking the Charles St. streetcar to get to Lafayette Cemetery is a beautiful ride. Once done with the cemetery, go out and take a walk in this district. You'll see beautiful historic houses that are very well preserved. It's a perfect, safe and beautiful neighbourhood to get lost in for a few hours. This is beautiful NOLA architecture.

We had a food tour at 4 different places , of the unique area of NOLA! Completely different than the French Quarter! Shops, restaurants, cemeteries, big old houses! This area is made for strolling and getting confused on which way to go! All the houses started to look the same! Enjoy! Cheers!

Absolutely stunning and safe to walk through. This is clearly where the rich live. With mansions and even castles everywhere the eye can see, stunning architecture and landscaping and a few very nice local restaurants, it was my favorite place to visit in NOLA!

A walk past beautiful period homes, mostly kept in good repair. It must be a monumental task keeping these houses looking so good. We had a pleasant walk on a comfortable day. A good leisure day activity followed by lunch at Surrey.

The Garden District was perfect for us - we visited with our dog and wanted to take him on a nice stroll after all the craziness of the French Quarter. The Garden District felt like a quaint suburban neighborhood in the middle of the big city. We loved walking around and seeing all the beautiful houses and tree-lined streets. Lots... More

Had a chance recently to get off the St. Charles streetcar line and explore the garden district. Was a beautiful sunny day. I love that one block of St.Charles street is a quiet, peaceful area with gorgeous homes. If you are a real estate " window shopper", this is the place for you! Slight breeze rustling the leaves, a few... More

Garden District is very pretty and we stayed at a VRBO house and wouldn't change a thing. We were off of Magazine Street and our hosts were very good, the traffic was very mild where we were staying so we're able to park right in front of the house, and walk around and felt safe.

We drove by as part of a tour. I think I was expecting more when it says "garden district" I though it would be very green with lots of great houses but I was a little disappointed. Worth checking out though

A nice safe-seeming area for a stroll on a pretty day. Lots of schools and churches in among the mansions. Best to go with a guide who can tell you who bought which house for $8.1 million.

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
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 yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
