To Start-We quickly arrive at the home of one of New Orleans’ oldest cemeteries - Lafayette Cemetery. Explore the grounds with your local guide, hear why these types of burials are iconic, and learn about some of the people buried here. . Next, we’ll take a stroll past gorgeous homes, some with famous Hollywood connections. To reflect the full story of The Garden District, your guide will highlight the real history and the true backbone of this historic neighborhood. Then we’ll look Across Magazine Street, where we’ll find the working-class area known as the Irish Channel. Predominantly settled by Irish immigrants, this neighborhood developed in the early 1800’s. In contrast to the palatial homes we saw earlier, your guide will take you past some of the iconic shotgun-style homes of New Orleans. Next, we’ll take you to a local spot in the heart of the Channel and sample one of New Orleans’ most famous foods, along with a local beer. Finally, we’ll take one final stroll past several more picturesque antebellum homes, making our way back close to the streetcar line.
