Much of this area should be walked as it is residential and the buses do not pass down these streets. The architecture of the homes built in the 1800's and early 1900's is impressive. The tree covered streets are beautiful and live oaks and crepe...More

Fantastic way to spend a few hours. Very walkable and so much to see. John Goodman and Sandra Bullock houses are worth the time. Great restaurants and little coffee shops. Stop by the Rink the old roller rink that is a quaint shopping venue.

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give

We didn't use an app. Our hotel provided the info, giving a list for each street. It is easy to figure out.
