It was also the Saturday before Halloween, so we definitely saw some crazy costumes! During the day people were just walking around in their costumes and it seriously felt like I was in the movie, Halloweentown. It was great. And at night, specifically on Bourbon street things got wild (and smelly).
The whole French Quarter had a spooky vibe. It is after all the most haunted city in America. We went on a haunted tour around the French Quarter to learn about some of the city's haunted history and got to see some of the spots where viscous murders happened and where people have witnessed ghosts.
I definitely have to go back, one weekend was definitely not enough!
As you can imagine, I was pretty excited to see this.
I stopped by a Witchcraft and Magic store.
There was a wedding parade.
This was Madame Lalaurie's mansion where she threw lavish parties and tortured and kept a lot of slaves in her attic. Nicholas Cage also owned this house, but lost it to foreclosure a few years ago.
We had breakfast at Stanley's
The Garden District had huge live Oak trees.
I really wanted to see the St. Louis Cemetery #1 where the Voodoo Queen, Madame Laveau was buried, but we ran out of time. We did drive by the Lafayette Cemetery #1, which looked similar.
