It was raining when we visited Cypress Grove, but it was still worth it. I think any of the cemeteries are going to offer an interesting experience.

Who puts cemeteries on their list of tourist stops? This girl! Typically they freak me out, but you can only go during the day in NOLA. It's definitely a site to see with the impressive mosoleums. We went to Greenwood first and it was nicer than the others that mainly looked less maintained. We chose not to do a cemetery... More

I've always wanted to see up close/in person how the city cemeteries are. There were headstones from the very early 1800s, and I wished I'd been on a walking tour so that I could have asked questions and learned more.

Took the red line trolley out here we ventured in to take a peek. Didn't see a lot of people here.... The structures not sure what they are called are really interesting. Some made of concrete and some of marble. Lots of really cool ones. Not sure how many people these hold but some had lots of names on them.... More

This is a huge cemetery. We drove through to look at the history and mystique of the tombs and mausoleums. There were some that were in the 1800's.

Visited both sides. While on Cypress Grove side noticed there was a Chinese Cemetery(if I am remembering correctly) inside,very interesting. A short walk away saw the Hurricane Katrina memorial, that was a highlight.

So, I was told to check out the cemeteries. I took the streetcar that stops at the cemeteries. I don't see the joy in going to cemeteries. The dead are buried above ground in tombs. Interesting but I wouldn't recommend going to see it. You can see the cemeteries from the cab as you are being driven to the airport.

Greenwood Cemetery is easily accessible with a small trip up Canal Street. As a cemetery buff, it was a must see for me and even if you're not really into cemeteries you should see at least one cemetery while in New Orleans and this one is good for that. Lots of road in and around it so you can drive... More

After being disappointed by not being able to find a park so we could go in to visit the tomb of the Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau in St. Louis Cemetery, my niece, Nicky drove me and my dad over to Greenwood Cemetery. I wanted to view the beautiful statues that kept guard over the dead and paid homage to the... More

We saw this cemetery immediately off of I-10, and decided to swing in because we were so frustrated trying to find the entrance to the Metairie Cemetery. This cemetery was in a sketchier side of town, but an easily reach entrance was very appealing! We were able to drive in, through most of the cemetery. There were smaller byways with... More
