The Garden district was built in the mid 19th century and is one of the most scenic and wealthy areas of all New Orleans. Lush, manicured trees and grand, historic mansions line the streets, making it a bit of an oasis away from the bustle of the French Quarter and perfect for strolling. Find yourself within walking distance to upscale dining, craft cocktails and rare antiques; but don’t let the luxury fool you--casual dining, dive bars and eclectic boutiques are all around the corner as well. Nearby attractions include the Audubon Park & Zoo, Lafayette Cemetery, Commander’s Palace and the shops of Magazine St. Just northeast of the garden district and a short car ride away, is the famed French Quarter. Opt for taking the charming street car down St. Charles Street and enjoy all the sites in between.
