Take time to drive through these incredible houses in NOLA! Lots of great history. Best to find a tour guide to give you history of these houses.

Our hotel was in this area - and we were so glad. It's an easy walk to the French Quarter, but so much quieter - easier to get a good night's sleep. There are also lots of excellent restaurants here that aren't over-run by tourists.

The Garden District is streets of very large historical Homes many owned by STars. Most of the homes were fenced in and if there were any gardens they were not visible to the public. The sidewalks are cracked & walking can be difficult at times....More

It's difficult to entice your group out of the French Quarter. I get it! I bribed my friends with a promise of lunch at Commanders Palace & a ride on the famous Nola trolley & off we went. It was a bit of a chore...More
