Arts District in New Orleans, LA
Arts District is a Tour Stop / Pick Up for the following tours:
The Warehouse District, known today as the New Orleans Arts District, was originally built as an industrial area in the 19th century to store grain, coffee, and produce shipped through the Port of New Orleans. As commerce, trade, and industry practices evolved over time, the area's successes faded, and the once busy streets dwindled into eerily quiet. The abundant and open spaces of the warehouses there were perfect for creating, storing, and displaying artwork. Today more than 25 galleries call the district home. Most are located on Julia Street, which is also the host of an evening gallery hop that hosts a mix of art lovers and socialites on the first Saturday night of every month.
