Halloween in New Orleans

There are few better times of the year to visit New Orleans than on Halloween. The temperature has dropped, fall is here, and the local spirits are high. New Orleanians love a good time, and from Bourbon Street to Frenchmen, there are good things happening in the old district.

And while the locals might get dressed up in festive garb for the holiday, if you’ve never been to New Orleans before, now is a great time to explore the streets and learn about the French Quarter’s long past. Ghosts and supernatural haunting are rife in this area, and a ghost tour will highlight all the tantalizingly spooky aspects of this city’s colorful history, while a walking tour of the famous above-ground New Orleans cemeteries will tell tales of Voodoo Queens and Haitian pirates. See the Vieux Carrie in a whole new light – an undead one!

Famous novelist Anne Rice chose to reside in New Orleans, and her huge house uptown is always a Mecca for vampire fans. And once you tour the area’s plantation houses and see the misty swamps for yourself, you’ll have to admit – there’s something definitely haunting about this little slice of the antebellum south.
