Garden District Walking Tour
While New Orleans is known the world over for the 18th century charm of our beautiful French Quarter built by the French and Spanish colonial founding families, less well-known are the graceful and elegant homes of the Garden District. In the 19th century, as the “English” or Americans became attracted to our thriving city, they were not especially welcomed in the older quarters and so moved up river, establishing what remains to this day, one of the gems of New Orleans, the Garden District.
During the tour, you will take in the stately mansions, beautiful gardens and the homes of famous past and present residents including John Goodman, Jefferson Davis, and Archie Manning.
Most of the houses in this tour include vibrant gardens with beautiful flowers and grand oak tree canopies. The homes are elaborate in their architecture, often remodeled through the years to try to mimic the state of wealth previous owners enjoyed. Some of the famous architectural home styles on this tour include, The Louisiana Raised Cottage, The Italiante, Greek Revival and Queen Anne.
