Take a brake from the crazy French Quarter

After the Louisiana purchase in 1803, is when the Garden District was developed for the wealthy Americans. Because of the large lawns, the community was fittingly nicknamed the Garden District. Just 15 min. from the French quarter. We will drive thought and talk about the differences between the Creoles( first born to the original settlers) and the American. You will see some of the most beautiful homes in America. I will explain the different types of architecture while we walk through this remarkable neighborhood. While in the Garden District we will swing over to the cemetery. New Orleans is a city surrounded by water and built below sea level. This is why our departed spend eternity entombed above ground. Before heading back we will stop by one of my favorite places uptown, The Columns Hotel. A beautiful home built in 1887 that is now a small boutique hotel.


I will pick you up at from a preset location. We will drive to the Garden District. Here we will do a walking or driving tour through the neighborhood. We stop and go in a cemetery. Stop for a drink at The columns hotel . This tour is about 3 hours , but can be extended upon request. Please let me know your interest and I will customize the tour for your enjoyment.
