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

On my quest to visit as many of New Orleans cities of the dead, Cypress Grove was suggested as one with no issues on doing solo. Very close to Metairie and suggest if you have the time to do both. Greenwood is right across the street from Cypress Grove. Out of all the cemeteries that I visited, I did not... More

Ok seems strange to rate a cemetery as an attraction but this one of the older cemeteries that is in a safe place to visit and see the older cemeteries.
