Experience the Garden District Walking Tour.

Stroll beneath the arching branches of live oak trees and past the clattering St. Charles Avenue streetcar, traveling back in time among the grand antebellum mansions of the Garden District. Soak in the Southern heritage and history of this fabled neighborhood as you tour the sights with an expert guide. Meet up your guide outside the Lafayette Cemetery No. 1, where you learn about the Creole tradition behind above-ground burials before setting off on foot to explore the Garden District. Step back into a bygone era colored by all the grand beauty and old-fashioned charm of the South as you admire elegant mansions, flower-filled gardens, and broad boulevards.

Discover why this historic pocket of New Orleans has lured famous figures and captivated writers, filmmakers, and visitors for centuries. Spot residences that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, like the George Washington Cable House, where Mark Twain is said to have visited. Learn about the unique architecture of the area, and wrap up your outing among the shops, boutiques, and cafes of Magazine Street.
