Garden District Tours

New Orleans' Garden District is the epitome of Southern charm. Plantation-style mansions, which are among the most impressive in the city, feature wrap-around porches, verandas, and manicured gardens where there’s always something blooming. Streets are separated by stretches of green parks, and the historic cable car line runs along St. Charles Avenue.

The Basics
This picturesque neighborhood is best experienced on foot, and tour choices include general, historical, and haunted tours of the area. A New Orleans Garden District walking tour reveals popular highlights such as the historic Lafayette Cemetery No. 1, famous antebellum houses, and the eclectic shops and restaurants of Magazine Street. Visitors with an interest in New Orleans’ haunted history can opt for a Garden District ghost tour to hear paranormal tales of the neighborhood where Interview with a Vampire, Dracula 2000, and American Horror Story: Coven were filmed. Some driving tours combine seeing the sights by mini bus with stops at top attractions.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • This neighborhood is a must-visit for history buffs and first-time visitors to New Orleans.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to do a lot of walking on a tour.
  • Walking tours generally last two to three hours and begin at a central meeting point in the neighborhood.
  • Driving tours of New Orleans often stop at the Garden District.

How to Get There
The easiest and most historic way to get to the Garden District is aboard the St. Charles streetcar, which also stops at Tulane and Loyola universities and the Audubon Zoo, part of the Audubon Nature Institute. It’s also possible to reach the area on foot and via the Magazine Street bus.

When to Get There
For many travelers, the best time to visit New Orleans is between February and May when the weather is cool and the calendar is packed with events, including Mardi Gras and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Expect temperatures upwards of 85°F (29°C) during visits from June to September.

Celebrity Homes in the Garden District
This live oak-shaded neighborhood is no stranger to celebrities, and many famous faces have homes in the area. While strolling through the neighborhood, you might spot the homes of Anne Rice, Archie and Peyton Manning, John Goodman, and Sandra Bullock.
