We had the nicest tour guide of the house, she knew everything from the materials used to build the house to current events and shows that happened in the house. I loved the rooms the doors and the property was beautiful. I would recommend taking...More

Not the easiest place to get to if you are not driving, but worth the trouble. You can walk the gardens for free, they cover about eight acres, and are like going from one unique space to another. Each of the 15 gardens has a...More

The Longvue is a pretty exceptional home tour, as far as home tours go. It is a home that has a lot of really neat things that were ahead of it's time. It almost feels like a World's Fair attraction in some way. It was...More

Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake
Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for
family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans
Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel
Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush
Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and
the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix
of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond

Depending on how much time you'd like wonder. The gardens are vast and beautiful. I'd say easily a couple hours.

At least 2 hours. If you wanted to really see all the beautiful gardens, I would stay 2 hours longer.
