Do not spend any money on tours! This is free...I had a rental car so I drove around and toured the city only using Google. There is no need to spend extra money. New Orleans is an expensive place.

Just get the streetcar marked "cemeteries" and get off at the terminus. These places are really interesting and you can spend hours looking around. They are not creepy although I felt that taking photos was not quite the correct thing to do. Some real history...More

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...More

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.

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....More
