Audobon Park & St. Charles & Garden District


Audubon Park
Known for its moss-hung oaks, ponds, and laid -back ambiance, Audubon Park lies just before Magazine Street meets the river.
Stroll, run, or bike along the Avenue of Oaks or hang out like the mo ss and picnic. Bring stale bread to feed the ducks and turtles. If you've got a bike, a great path runs for miles atop the levee, starting just to the right of the Zoo entrance.
All gratifyingly gratis.

St. Charles & Garden District
Walk through Audubon Park from Magazine to St. Charles. At the park entrance, take the Streetcar back to the French Quarter.
The 13-mile ride passes a stunning assortment of Creole, Greek Revival and Victorian architectural fantasies. In the Garden District, a free National Historic Landmark, use your self-guided tour to check out historic mansions along the charming streets lined with oaks and oleanders.
Anne Rice fans often cluster outside her residence at 1239 First St., home of the fictional Mayfair witches.
