Garden District Reviews

1 review
Upon first moving to New Orleans we lived downtown and immediately began casing the city for the ideal neighborhood to live in. Of course the Garden District instantly appealed to us because of the safety, walkability, and access to grocery stores, cafes and proximity to the streetcar. We waited until we could find an affordable apartment off of 8th and St Charles and have never been happier!
