When night falls on New Orleans, the heat of the day and buoyant sounds of sunshine jazz give way to a more sinister side of the city. After dark, make your way to St Anthony’s Garden in the heart of the French Quarter and set off with a local guide through the surrounding streets and squares that drip with a violent and strange history.
Learn how major renovations of the area awakened sleeping ghosts that long inhabited the Creole mansions, historic watering holes and dilapidated buildings, leading to a spike in paranormal activity and New Orleans’ reputation as the most haunted city in America. You’ll have the chance to try out professional ghost-hunting equipment to see if any trapped spirits are lingering nearby.
See real-life haunts and crime scenes that inspired urban legends, and hear the tragic and blood-curdling true tales of murder, revenge, suicide and scandal that resulted in so many lost souls. Whether or not you believe in ghosts, the stories are not for the faint of heart!
