Glamorous New Orleans: Garden District & Magazine Street Walking Tour

by Unique NOLA Duration 2h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $30

New Orleans may be known for the French Quarter, but there's so much more to see in the Big Easy. Leave Bourbon Street behind and make your way to the Garden District for a morning spent exploring the beauty, glamour, and grace throughout one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in the nation.

Meet your guide on St. Charles Avenue, just steps away from the old-timey streetcar. From here, set off into the district, strolling down sweet oak-lined streets marked with antebellum mansions. Your first stop of the morning is Lafayette Cemetery No. 1, the oldest city-owned graveyard in New Orleans. Feel the history of the city wash over you as you step through the wrought-iron gate, coming close to moss-covered mausoleums that have sat on these grounds since the 1800s.

Your journey continues with stops to see the past and present homes of NOLA-loving celebrities. Marvel at the columns of Anne Rice's former Victorian Gothic and the Swiss-style architecture of Sandra Bullock's home. As you pass by more ornate mansions adorned with flowers and ferns, hear of the rich history of the neighborhood and the members of high society who have and still do call the area home.

Your guide then leads you onto beautiful Magazine Street, a 6-mile (9.7 km) stretch running from the southeast edge of the French Quarter to the Mississippi River. Admire a charming range of architecture, from Greek Revival to Victorian cottages, as you walk along antique stores, art galleries, and coffee shops. End your tour on the corner of Magazine and Washington, where you can ask your guide for recommendations on where to go next.
