The paths and roads are not maintained. I visited the site and they are dangerous. Anyone in a Wheel chair or needs a mobility aid take extra precautions.

We drove through the district with the tram and then visited the Lafayette Cemitary no. 1 and The Rink shopping center in a pretty historic building. We had a coffee and visited the Garden District bookshop which had a great selection.

Wonderful old houses and so well kept! What a great place to see the grand old homes from the turn of the centuries! It's best seen in full daylight from both directions so you see each side of the street.

Through Magazine street you can visit several different stores (antiques, clothes, souvenirs), and delight yourself with a variety of restaurants. Houses of course with gardens display different shades of green.
