Garden District /Lafayette Cemetery

We'll meet at you hotel and proceed upriver in a luxury Honda Odyssey van to the Garden District. If you are up for walking a little, it is best. If you are not able to walk, no problem! We will take in the neighborhood and the most beautiful cemetery in New Orleans, Lafayette Cemetery. We'll discuss the architecture and the story of why this area boomed. We will drive down St. Charles Avenue - the grand promenade with its opulent mansions.


Garden District walking tour including Lafayette Cemetery. St. Charles Avenue with its beautiful mansions. Please note: occasionally the Lafayette Cemetery closes - contrary to its scheduled hours. If this is the case we'll just go with the flow, we can talk about the cemetery, peer in from outside- we'll make it work!
