While in New Orleans, we had time for a quick trip through the Garden District. It’s a beautiful area and I’ve always heard about it over the years as being a very desirable place to live.
I can definitely see why! I took these shots driving in the car, so they are not the best, but you can see the beauty.
Enjoy these drive-by photos on beautiful St. Charles Avenue in the Garden District of New Orleans. I can definitely see why one would want to live here, can’t you?I don’t know a lot to say, so I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves. One fun thing about New Orleans is the varied architectural details on all the houses. They are so very unique and not cookie cutter at all.
Are you ready to move to the Garden District yet?
I know, it’s just gorgeous and this is such a pretty drive. I hope you enjoyed seeing these homes too.
I still have a couple more posts from New Orleans. Are you tired of them yet? Hope not! 🙂
I was just alerted to a tragic story over here, about a blogger named Kellie. This couple recently lost their baby girl to what appears to be SIDS and there is an auction here (you have to log in to Facebook to see it) to help them with their very sad situation. Please go over and visit and leave support for this precious couple.
Gorgeous homes! I think the 3rd & 5th photos are my favorites!!
Beautiful photos Rhoda. I haven’t been there in years. So glad to see it is thriving again.
Beautiful homes. We took a tour of the Garden District a few years ago while on a weekend in New Orleans and got to go inside a few of them. Just lovely and filled with charm and character. I’m enjoying all of your photos of New Orleans, Rhoda!
why yes, i believe i’ll take one of each. thanks!

Those are some grand houses for sure. The West Coast doesn’t see anything that pretty here. I love that they are all unique and special. Each one has it’s own personality doesn’t it?

None of the architecture in New Orleans is cookie cutter! That’s what I love about our city! The neighborhoods can be elite like St. Charles or more realistic. We are about to build in a fantastic neighborhood here that has so much variety and New Orleans aesthetic. I can’t wait! That’s what’s so great yet overwhelming at the same time….so many decisions to be made by us in order to keep that charm! Thanks for these posts. I’m really enjoying them!!
Great pictures! I am enjoying our New Orleans tour! Keep them coming!!
Love New Orleans…not just the architecture, but the HEART. Thanks for showcasing this wonderful city!

In my next life, I would like to live in uptown NOLA. 🙂
I must get my husband (or better girlfriends) to make a trip to NOLA and go on a walking tour of the Garden District and enjoy the city. I just found your blog a couple of months ago and enjoy it greatly. Thanks so much for sharing!
