Slice of New Orleans Past in Greek Revival Home

The St. Charles streetcar has rumbled through New Orleans since 1835, making it one of the world’s oldest street railways. It's still fitted with mahogany seats and brass ornaments, and makes for a peaceful sightseeing tour, passing 19th-century mansions as well as the campuses of Tulane and Loyola Universities. Located a block from the streetcar's route in the Lower Garden District, Fairchild House is a convenient home base for exploring the city. Like the streetcar, the hotel reflects New Orleans history through its restored, 1841 Greek Revival house and two adjoining homes.

From the street, the B & B blends so well into its surroundings that you might still mistake it for someone's home—there's no sign out front, only a wrought-iron gate with a small brass plaque. Behind it, two of the three separate buildings boast neoclassical columns and all have painted shutters. In the back sits a courtyard paved with bricks, while live oaks stretch the entire length of the property in the front. It's one of the best places to chat with the hostesses or challenge local birds to a game of Name that Tune.

Inside, each guest room offers its own individual vibe, but several come with four-poster beds, persian rugs, and the mantels of former fireplaces. Throughout the buildings, Victorian-style antiques blend with posters of past New Orleans Jazz Fests for a charismatic Big Easy atmosphere. In the morning, innkeepers lay out the "continental plus breakfast," a spread of fresh fruit, cereal, breads, juice, tea, and coffee beside a piano in the breakfast room.

New Orleans: Classic Cajun Fare and Historic Neighborhoods

New Orleans's unofficial motto is "Laissez les bons temps rouler," which translates roughly to "Let the good times roll," a Cajun French phrase that describes the city’s carefree attitude. Creole and Cajun influences also help make the city's cuisine famous, with signature dishes like spicy jambalaya, giant crawfish boils, smoky gumbos, and pork boudin sausages. Don't miss the city’s classic dessert—beignets—square donuts buried in powdered sugar.

The iconic French Quarter is the city's oldest neighborhood and one of its most popular, thanks to its 18th-century homes, courtyard cafés, and jazzy nightlife on Bourbon Street. To the south, roam the quieter Garden District to see classic Greek Revival and Italianate homes built in the mid-19th century sitting alongside formal English gardens and antique shops.
