Amazing, beautiful huge homes! Worth the streetcar ride. We took the streetcar to the end of the St. Charles line, but you could get off and on to see the homes up close if you'd like.

Took the St Charles Avenue Streetcar from Poydras to the end....crowded, but became less so the further we went! Beautiful old homes, stately trees, Halloween decorated homes, pretty landscaping......all added to this nice drive! Also went to the area to go to Commanders Palace for...More

We enjoyed seeing all of the beautiful homes and the live oaks everywhere. Haloween is in 10 days, so many of the homes were decorated . Some were quite elaborate. Its a beautiful area, worthy of your exploration.

Some nice old houses, otherwise not worth the visit. Cemetery was interesting but not really a tourist attraction!

We took the street car to this area. Just sit and travel through Charles Street looking at the beautiful houses.

The Garden district is a beautiful part of the city. You can go to Lafayette cemetary, see the beautiful mansions, and even homes of famous actors and authors. It's a must see for any tourist!

Very interesting part of the city. Good to go with a guide who can take you to the most interesting streets and homes and who can speak about the architecture. And while you're there, stop to see Lafayette Cemetery.

Take the St. Charles trolley line to see the beautiful homes and parks here. A refreshing change from cheesy Bourbon Street.

Great way to view the garden district is via the trolley, beautiful homes seen in a relaxing manner & we were able to get on & off to eat at one of our favorite restaurants.

Very interesting architecture and scenery. Very comfortable area to stroll with unique cemeteries. Don't miss local galleries. Wear good shoes and have water.

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.

I didn't think so. Maybe so consignment but definitely no thrift stores.

The area is generally a safe residence area. Suggest "Lower Garden District", go to Magazine St, between Jackson Ave and Washington Ave. Great food eateries and shopping area. Washington St near Commodore Palace's is nice... More
