Grand Garden District Tour -2hrs

2 hours

Local coffee house, PJ's serves as a caffeinated oasis to start the 2 hour walking tour. Other nearby eateries on well known Magazine Street include a donut shop, deli, creperie and a new hip breakfast spot- if you prefer something more substantial to get your day going. The tour itself focuses on the lush Garden District. Your expert guide will provide a quick overview of Louisiana history before delving into the architectural gems of the neighborhood. Historical context inclusive of the slave trade, the patrons of the mansions along with the architects are discussed. Local burial traditions are reflected upon outside the gates of the historic Lafayette cemetery. Lastly a few pop culture references and celebrity related addresses are included with a special stop reserved for the Buckner Mansion, known to fans of American Horror Story as the Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies.
