New Orleans Cemeteries, Ghosts & Voodoo
By Viator, June 2014
Numerous vampire stories surround the above-ground cemeteries and cracked courtyards of New Orleans. So many, in fact, that novelist Anne Rice set her famous The Vampire Chronicles here, and decided to strike up residence herself. A guided Vampire Tour is a relatively quick and fun way to hear the local lore without what you might think would be requisite kitsch.
Ghosts are a frequent haunt in New Orleans. Find out where they lurk on a guided Ghost Tour through the Garden District. You’ll be guided through New Orleans’ most haunted cemetery - St. Louis No.1 - and visit the tomb of the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans, Marie Laveau. You’ll also hear about the evolution of Voodoo - which is still practiced today - and learn how it became such a popular phenomenon in the Crescent City.
