    Garden District

    Garden District

    Favorite thing: The Garden District is a residential area with luxurious mansions two miles upriver from the French Quarter. It was built in the 1840s by rich people in the cotton and trade business to show off their wealth. The mansions have big gardens, porches, balconies and columns.

    Fondest memory: You can easily reach this area by the famous St. Charles Streetcar that will bring you from Canal/Carondelet Street, along the tree-lined St. Charles Street with many beautiful houses to the area. Get off at Washington Street and wander along the many wonderful houses and pay a visit to the Lafayette Cemetary.

    by Virtuous_Tourist Updated Apr 19, 2005

    Favorite thing: The largest private university in Louisiana is the renowned Tulane University located in beautiful uptown New Orleans. It's student body used to be comprised primarily of local residents but most of those enrolled here come from out of the State now.

    Favorite thing: Take the St. Charles Street car to the Garden district. It costs about a dollar. The homes and gardens are great!

    Fondest memory: The french quarter. Make sure to go into Madame Louvue's voodoo shop at the end of Bourbon past Tropical Isle And get a Mufulatta at General Grocery. Four people can eat the sandwich and it is an awesome meal!
