We took the street car through the garden district. It was a great ride. The houses were decorated for Halloween and the kids were just getting out to go trick or treating. It was the perfect time to visit.

Strolling through the Garden District is a wonderful way to spend an hour or so on a sunny day. If possible go with a guide or have a good guide book.
