The garden district has some impressive houses. Although not much is going on around this residential area, it is quite worth a good afternoon walk.

Beautiful area with rich history. I especially enjoyed the inclusion of Opera House where the manager filled us in on historical facts as well as fun facts regarding movies filmed in the area. He was enthusiastic and engaging.

Absolutely love the Garden District, obsessed with the homes. Would love to retire there one day! The people are friendly, the scenery is breathtaking, and the atmosphere is calm and serene. The cultural backstory of the homes artistry and architecture is a historical gem.
