    New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum

    724 Dumaine Street, New Orleans, LA 70116-3109
    16 reviews

    With a unique collection of voodoo-related items from the mysteries, secrets, histories, folklore, rituals, zombies, gris-gris, and famous practitioners of the religion, this has to be one of the most interesting small museums in the country. It’s intended to be an educational and entertaining experience designed for preserving the legacy of the New Orleans flavor of Voodoo and meant for ...

    Lafayette Cemetery

    1400 Washington Avenue, New Orleans, LA, United States
    28 reviews

    If you haven't taken a guided tour, and learned the culture of how they bury, and the traditions, be sure to read up on it, or find a tour . Bloody Mary Tours has a guided night time cemetery tour. Its a lot of fun, and a little freaky. You will learn ALOT! We really enjoyed it.

    Jackson Square

    Decatur Street, New Orleans, LA
    83 reviews

    My favorite part of going here (other than the historical significance and beautiful scenery) is that local artists set up shop all around the perimeter of Jackson Square, so it's a great place to buy and view the great work of the local artists.

    St. Louis Cathedral

    615 Pere Antoine Alley, New Orleans, LA 70116-3234
    60 reviews

    The Cathedral-Basilica of Saint Louis, King of France (aka St. Louis Cathedral), is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans. It has the distinction of being the oldest continuously operating cathedral in the US (since 1794). I'm not Catholic, but I appreciate an excellent European-style Church, especially the calm opportunity to reflect and consider life's puzzles. The ...

    Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop

    941 Bourbon Street, New Orleans, LA
    49 reviews

    Built in 1772, this building is one of the oldest, if not THE oldest, continually-run bar in New Orleans, and perhaps in the entire United States. It looks like a dingy pirate haven, and, apparently, Jean Lafitte himself owned it for some time, using it until 1791 as his base for his Barataria smuggling operation, and he’s been reported to ...

    New Orleans City Park

    1 Palm Drive, New Orleans, LA 70124-4608
    36 reviews

    The park was built during the Great Depression by the Works Progress Administration and is one of the largest and best urban parks in the US. The sculpture garden is free and a must see if you need a restful escape or peaceful stroll. The massive, Spanish moss draped Live Oaks, some over 800 years, now shade walkers and joggers ...

    Voodoo Authentica

    612 Dumaine St., New Orleans, LA 70116
    1 review

    I had already known that the depiction of Voodoo in popular culture was exaggerated to the negative, that it wasn't a dark practice like it's portrayed in films. Still, the unknown is always a tad spooky, and I was a bit hesitant when I passed by an old wooden door with the word "Voodoo" on it. I decided to step ...

    Abandoned Jazzland / Six Flags New Orleans

    12310 Six Flags Parkway, New Orleans, Louisiana, 70129
    2 reviews

    Maybe you’re an urban adventurer looking for a real-life Zombieland experience (sans Twinkies) of your own. Or maybe you’re a budding photographer looking for some really strange/unique subjects and backgrounds to practice shooting on. Either way, even though it may technically be considered as trespassing, this is one hell of a spot for those who want to get in touch ...

    Saint Louis Cemetery #1

    3421 Esplanade Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70119-2902
    30 reviews

    This city’s dead – and the odd practice of their flood-wary, above-ground burials – have attracted onlookers for centuries. And of all the cemeteries that dot the city, St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 has to be the best known for being the oldest one still standing in the city (dating back to 1789) and holding a number of famous folks ...

    French Market

    400 Elysian Fields
    54 reviews

    The quality of the goods has deteriorated over the years but this is still a staple of the New Orleans experience. My favorite part of visiting here is getting fresh oysters and listening to some live music. Worth a visit when in town.

    The French Quarter

    French Quarter, New Orleans, LA 70116
    117 reviews

    To me there are two sides to the French Quarter. The one with great restaurants, a rich history, and deep reflection of NOLA culture. And the other that is a reflection of all that is wrong with the world while you walk down Bourbon Street and breath in the stench of vomit, urine and hot garbage. I tend to focus ...

    Bourbon Street

    Bourbon Street, New Orleans, LA 70130
    144 reviews

    I recently completed a busy and satisfying business trip near Baton Rouge that finished up on a late Thursday afternoon. My plane back to Oakland wasn't leaving until Friday morning, and my hosts suggested that I drive down to New Orleans, and enjoy the evening there before heading out. Great Idea! I've been to Bourbon Street before, and whenever I ...

    Maple Leaf Bar

    8 reviews

    It's about a 10-15 minute cab ride from downtown Chicago. It's a little out of the way for travelers, however it is SO worth it. Take away the tourists and add really awesome big band live jazz and a comfy neighborhood vibe and you have the Maple Leaf bar. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here!!

    Frenchmen Art Market

    619 Frenchmen St, New Orleans, Louisiana
    6 reviews

    The Frenchmen Art Market is an outdoor nightly art market, where local artisans sell unique paintings, arts and crafts, and jewelry. The cute little light bulbs strung throughout the market gives the place an authentic, magical vibe. There's also a basket of chalk where visitors can show off their artistic skills on the open pavement and cool brightly lit couches.

    One of the most historic and classic music venues in America. Try and see a local band there and you won't regret it. Was fortunate enough to see Michael Franti and Spearhead play a show there all night 3 years ago.

    It's not just the music I love but the people that come to this festival. One of the best ways to experience New Orleans! If you are a lover of music, especially jazz, this festival is an absolute must. I mean, come on, this is the city where jazz was born!

    Audubon Park

    Grab a po'boy and head to the "Fly," the breezy uptown stretch of Audubon Park along the river, where locals go to unwind and find a few hours' respite from the intense heat.

    Magazine Street

    Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA 70130
    38 reviews

    Staying at a hotel on this street during this visit. We're finding it to be the perfect location, as we're still walking distance to the Quarter and all of the sites, but also have a good buffer from some of the madness. Also very close to the river and museums and art galleries.
