This is a quiet place of magical grace far from the industrial activities on the waterfront or the party atmosphere of the French Quarter. The Garden District is an opulent enclave of mansions , built to remove its affluent citizens from the everyday life of the rest of New Orleans, sheltering them amid the quiet streets, elegant trees and lovely gardens. Join us as we walk through an amazing collection of garden homes and explore their history. Some come alive with stories of long ago. Others have served as recent movie locations. Whatever the homes and their stories, the Garden District is an elegant and unforgettable area tucked away and waiting for you to explore.
