The Avenue Plaza Resort is also located here; it features accommodations with kitchenettes and spacious seating areas. Restaurants and antique shops are within walking distance, and the St. Charles streetcar located across the street can take you to the city’s top tourist attractions.

New Orleans’s Garden District: Quiet Residential Neighborhood with Antebellum Mansions and Antique Shops
In 2011, Travel + Leisure named New Orleans’s Garden District 1 of the 10 most beautiful neighborhoods in America. In the 1840s, well-to-do Americans began building Greek Revival and Italianate style mansions along its tree-lined streets. A walk through the neighborhood reveals Victorian fronts, cast-iron fences, and sweeping front porches. Most of the properties are surrounded by the English-style gardens that gave the district its name, and they stay in bloom year-round. It’s been the setting for several novels, including Anne Rice’s Witching Hour series.
The Garden District also has some charming shopping and dining spots. At the southern end of the neighborhood, Magazine Street is lined with French bistros, art galleries, and antique shops. Several of New Orleans’s top historical sites are also within walking distance, including Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

“On Sundays, The Saint pumps a ton of free credits into their jukebox. The selection is eclectic (Queens of the Stone Age and Michael Jackson), so it’s easy to blow through dozens of tracks. Luckily, this hole-in-the-wall is open 24 hours, so you’ll have plenty of time to hear your entire playlist.”

“Try the Hangtown Fry omelet at Coop's Place: fried oysters, bacon, cheddar cheese, and green onions. It's weird but tastes amazing. Plus, it comes with fries, making it the best hangover cure ever.”
