What To Expect
Visit the "American" section of the Garden District that was built to rival the architectural splendor of the Creoles' French Quarter!
Enjoy a walk through New Orleans' elegant Garden District, once part of the plantation owned by Bienville, the founder of New Orleans. This historic district is known for its marvelous examples of Greek Revival and Italianate architecture.
Among the mansions found in this district are John Goodman's, Sandra Bullock's and Archie Manning's. We'll also be able to see infamous author Anne Rice's mansion; the house where Jefferson Davis died in 1889; the unique cornstalk fence, and Commander's Palace Restaurant.
We'll visit Lafayette Cemetery, one of our Cities of the Dead, and learn about our unusual above-ground burial system. (Cemetery is closed on Sundays and some holidays.)
