Take a camera!!! "BUT DO NOT GO ALONG" it in a part of town. Stay close to the people you went with. The famous Voodoo Queen is buried her "Marie Laveau, and her daughter is also buried her name is the same as her mother. There is a tomb built for Nicholas Cage. All the Tombs are all very interesting. Plan on spending about five hours.

Cool place! I've always wanted to go to a cemetary in New Orleans, and this is the one to visit. It's right downtown, off of St. Louis street. There is a lot of history here. You can get a tour guide, which can be a little safer, since there are signs posted regarding muggers hiding in the cemetary.

We merely walked around without a tour guide, the four of us, and stayed together. Have fun!

A little creepy but a must see. A couple of famous people are buried here. Look at the names on the tombstone and you'll discover who they are. Not a place we would spend a lot of time but would recommend you visit. It's interesting to note the history of this place.

We've checked out a few of New Orleans' cemeteries. St. Louis #1 has the most interesting vibe for sure. The rest? Well I guess it's a great place for a dirt nap!
