Create an itinerary including Garden District
Noted for its well-preserved antebellum private mansions and meticulously manicured gardens, Garden District serves as a reminder of the city's golden years of prosperity. You can take a guided walking tour of this photogenic neighborhood, where residents take great pride in their well-cared-for properties. Some mansions even open their doors for special-event tours, allowing visitors a quick peek at their English-style gardens. Originally laid out in the 1820s, the neighborhood first attracted "new money" residents looking to outshine one another by building and continuously expanding their Greek Revival houses. Visit the neighborhood's lower district where you can explore trendy boutiques, bars, and restaurants.

  • Spent an afternoon walking around and looking at the beautiful homes and the ironwork on many of them. Wish I had been here when the flowers were in bloom.

  • Beautiful homes, great history. I love the quaint southern little streets. The architecture is amazing and so unique to have the different styles in such a small area.
