Once the original city of Lafayette, this elegant district of New Orleans was created in the 1800s to rival the magnificence of the French Quarter and provide a space for wealthy Americans to disconnect their business lives from their home lives. Today, it is home to the rich and famous of New Orleans and continues to be a sight of beauty and prosperity in the city. On this walking tour, you’ll learn all about the history of the area and explore the locations that make it so beloved. You’ll also hear about why one of the oldest street car lines in the country, the St. Charles Line, was created here and how this impacted the development of the area. Explore the Lafayette Cemetery and discover why it differs in design from other burial lands in the city.
