You just have to see one of the many above ground cementaries in New Orleans. This one is free (a bit of the beaten track) away from French Quarter, so you have more privacy (need a car to get there). Well worth a visit.

This cemetery is beautiful and just amazing. It do not give off that sad vibe place to be. It gives a peacefully garden vibe feeling with amazing architectural tombs. It is well maintained and the tombs are fabulous.

This is a truly beautiful—and HUGE— cemetery. We spent a good two hours walking around and I’m sure we didn’t even see everything it has to offer. There are numerous buildings around the property, with both indoor and outdoor grave sites. We stopped by on...More

We visited the cemetery during the Halloween season and it made our vacation that much more enjoyable and spooky. It did get hot later in the day so be sure to wear cool clothing.

Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake
Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for
family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans
Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel
Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush
Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and
the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix
of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond
