Uptown encompasses the area upriver from Louisiana Avenue between Tchoupitoulas Street and South Claiborne Avenue, on the west side of the Garden District. Stately mansions line the length of St. Charles Avenue, where you'll find colorful Mardi Gras beads hanging from tree limbs throughout the year. Traveling along the avenue from downtown to uptown provides something of a historical narrative: the city's development unfolded upriver, and the houses grow more modern the farther uptown you go. Smaller shotgun and Victorian-style homes on the side streets display old-world charm, and the family-oriented neighborhood is home to Loyola and Tulane universities. Magazine Street bustles with six miles of shops, bars, and restaurants all the way from the CBD up to Audubon Park.
