    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.  more »

    Beautiful cemetery, grounds are well kept, although several tombs have fallen into disrepair. Fireman's section in front and some extremely ornate tombs. Right off the streetcar line so there is usually people wandering around.

    To find the secret of death is to seek it in the heart of life. A owl whose night bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light. Open your heart into the body of life; then shall you find the spirit of death, for life and death are one. The fear of death is the trembling of a shepherd when he stands before the King whose hand is to be laid upon him in Honour. To stand naked in the wind and free the breath from its restless tide so it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered. Love is truly known!

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
