Cemeteries, Voodoo, slave-trading, and pirates make for a heady mix of history – and paranormal activity. A long and seedy past that includes many a horrific and macabre story, New Orleans is widely known as one of the most haunted cities in the American South. At once enticing yet horrifyingly mesmerizing, the haunted history of New Orleans runs wider and deeper than the muddy Mississippi herself.

On any ghost tour of New Orleans, you’ll likely be led down the French Quarters myriad streets and hear stories of New Orleans haunted hotspots. Take Lalaurie House. This Royal Street mansion is where an evil and twisted doctor once kept slaves hidden from view only to perform deranged and abhorrent medical experiments on them. Then there’s the St. Louis Cemetery which is considered by many to be the most haunted cemetery in the world – here you’ll get a history of New Orleans’ burial practices and learn about the Voodoo Queen Marie Laveaux who makes nightly wanderings about the cemetery and North Rampart. Arnaud’s a very popular restaurant, is also a frequent stop on the hit list, so if you do happen to stop and hear about the excesses and extremes of Arnaud Cazenave, it’s  a perfect time to enjoy a classic New Orleans’ spirit – hey it is a ghost tour, after all!
