The weather forecast for Sunday looks perfect for the annual Bywater Neighborhood Association Home Tour which is a self-guided walking tour – my favorite kind. I walked the tour in 2009 and thoroughly enjoyed the laid back pace as I got a look into several homes I’d always wished to see and gardens only glimpsed from the street. General admission tickets are $15.00 and can be purchased at the beginning of the tour in the park at 710 Clouet St where complimentary maps are also available. The Bywater tour is one of the most affordable home tours in the city ($15!) showcasing an eclectic, colorful and friendly community of shotguns, camelbacks and creole cottages (among others) that will not disappoint. The tour runs from noon to 4:00.
Don’t let this event pass you by!
