I took a walking tour through the Garden District and left wanting to move there immediately. It was beautiful. The history is wonderful and the trees are amazing. I would highly recommend taking a tour.

Stunning homes and gardens. Love riding the streetcars. Much safer than French Quarter. Excellent restaurants.

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.
