New Orleans Best-preserved Collections of Historic Mansions
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.
In the charming Garden District, oak-shaded streets are lined with a diverse mix of homes, from single-story cottages to the grand historic mansions and lavish gardens of St. Charles Avenue, on the Mardi Gras parade route. Leafy Lafayette Cemetery is filled with ornate, 19th-century tombs. Boutiques and antique shops sit alongside fine-dining restaurants, casual cafes and local bars on and around Magazine Street. .
While in the Garden District we will walk through Lafayett cemetery. One of New Orleans oldest cemeteries.

This was a very informative tour and she went out of her way to show us things in which we expressed an interest. Michaela has an obvious love for her city and lots of knowledge about it all. Highly recommend.
