Things move a little more slowly in the beautiful Garden District where you can ride the streetcar down St. Charles Avenue and be dazzled by the stately Victorian mansions along oak-lined streets. As you venture into the side streets the scent of jasmine and magnolia fills the air from the overflowing gardens. For contrast, visit the crypts of Lafayette Cemetery No. 1. or keep things lively with fine dining establishments and casual cafes.
