New Orleans: the scene out of French Quarter

So you’ve soaked up the vibes of the French Quarter, What’s next? Garden District!

RTA- Historic Streetcar ride
A stone throw away from the French market, you will find a Streetcar station (St. Charles Avenue). Buy a unlimited day pass for $3 (super cheap!) and hop on! Change a car at the Canal Street and ride comfortably to the Garden District!

Garden District

I was given a map of the Garden district and we explored on a self-guided tour. It started to rain when we got to the Lafayette cemetery. The atmosphere just got too eerie we decided to skip it. The old historic mansion in the Garden District was gorgeous, the tiles with the street names are beautifully laid out. My only few complaints was, it was drizzling non-stop and some of the fences are too high for me (with this cute height) to have a peek at the mansions.

Creole Creamery
We added a pint of strawberry sorbet after the tasting scoops.  
The famous Creole Creamery is just a few stops away so although it was a cold rainy day, there were no stopping us from getting our ice cream! Eat ice cream, be Happy!
Recommendation: 6 scoops tasting menu for only $7.
                              A pint of your favorite flavor.
** Cash only.

Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden  

Situated right next to the New Orleans Museum of Art, is one of the best Sculpture Garden I've been to. There are a lot of photos opportunities with all the pounds, fountain, lovely oaks and pines, and of course all those 3 dimensional contemporary art! Entrance is free of charge, I suggest you to bring a picnic lunch in this idyllic park.

Morning Call
This is another New Orleans 24 hours coffee stand to indulge in coffee and beignets. Worth a try since it is so near to the sculpture garden.
