A walking tour of New Orleans’ Garden District offers a glimpse of some of the most beautiful homes in New Orleans. The Garden District is less than 3 miles southwest of the French Quarter, and it’s a historic neighborhood filled with glorious residences, lush trees, sprawling ivy, and, of course, many gardens. In New Orleans’ Garden District, tourists like to walk around the streets and soak in the architecture. The Garden District is a peaceful place where a well-preserved New Orleans residential area gives respite from some of the busier places in the city, like Bourbon Street.
Shop, Relax, and, Of Course, View Gardens
New Orleans’ Garden District is a great place to rest and regenerate after a couple of hours spent in the French Quarter. The intersection of Washington Avenue and Prytania Street is a fun place in the Garden District to pop into shops or cafes, and it’s where New Orleans’ famous Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 sits. Spanning from St. Charles Avenue to New Orleans’ Magazine Street, and from Louisiana Avenue to Jackson Avenue, the Garden District is perfect for a stroll – either a guided tour or a self exploration. Visitors can access the Garden District from the Magazine Street bus or from the St. Charles Streetcar.
