For the traveller who likes architecture it is ideal. In just a few blocks a variety of styles. No need for a tour. Look online for a map and walk around yourself.

Homes of all styles and in various states of remodeling, from rough to finished and beautiful. Unfortunately one of the best parts of these historic homes are the rear courtyards which are hidden from view.

You can see a lot of the architecture from the St. Charles street car line. Also, there is a lot of good shopping on Magazine St.

I took a "Walking tours by foot" trip through the garden district, and it was a beautiful area of the city. Saw a few homes owned by persons everyone knows, such as Sandra Bullock, John Goodman, and Archie Manning.

We walked around the Garden District whilst on a guided tour. What beautiful and fabulous houses here for the rich. We were fortunate to go inside one of them , the Sophronie Claiborne & Mandeville Marigny Cottage on St Charle's Avenue. Steeped in history.

We loved this area, a refreshing change from the French Quarter. We visited the cemetery, which I loved as all the graves are above ground in tombs. If you are a fan of Anne Rice ( she has a house in nearby) you will recognise...More

Stroll around and find areas to see, be mindful to wear good footwear and if u you have a walker or wheelchair it could be challenging in some areas of the side walk. Just pick your path. Stores are great on magazine street so check...More
