I just got back from a long weekend in the beautiful city of New Orleans. I had a wonderful time in the big easy and attended a beautiful wedding. One of my favorite parts of the trip was taking the Saint Charles Avenue street car line through the Garden District and looking at all the beautiful houses. It’s actually my favorite thing to do in any city minus the Street Car part. However, wouldn’t it be wonderful if more cities had Street Cars so then I wouldn’t almost wreck looking at a house I like! Here are some of the beautiful houses I saw. Plus a couple of little facts about them, for my friends who like factoids.
The street car is only a $1.25 a person and in my opinion the best thing I did in the City. Talk about bang for your buck.
W.P. Brown House (1905) 4717 St. Charles Ave
Front porch of the “Wedding Cake House” Look at all the details in the molding.
5809 St. Charles Avenue, Known as the “Wedding Cake House”
Benjamin Monroe House (1912) 5531 St. Charles Avenue
The Castles House (1896) at 6000 Saint Charles Avenue
Of course, this is just a small sampling of the beautiful homes. If you get the chance to go to New Orleans you should definitely go see it for yourself.
