Reservations required by phone. The Garden District of New Orleans is America's grandest Antebellum neighborhood. Originally a sugarcane plantation located Upriver from the French Quarter, it was subdivided in the 1830s, experiencing a building boom that last through the civil war and beyond. Majestic architecture ranging from purist Greek Revival to full blown examples of Italianate., Swiss Chalet and Gothic line the streets, canopied with a natural leafy cathedral of Live Oaks while fountains splash and statues bare witness. Long the haunt of the affluent and famous, today the Garden District is to many celebrated actors, writers and politicians. Columns and Oaks Garden District Walking Tours is the only tour that takes you inside of one of these magnificent mansions.

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
