Celebrate Halloween in New Orleans!
Neon lights, festive frights, and romantic nights await you in New Orleans! Here are just a few things you MUST do during your trip.
Visit the French Quarter
The French Quarter is sometimes called the "Crown Jewel of New Orleans," and it certainly deserves that title. It's famed for its "romantic, mysterious, and jazzy vibe," as well as for its gorgeous old world-style architecture and its shops and businesses that seamlessly blend the old with the new. For a truly authentic experience, stop to get your fortune told on Jackson Square or take in the beauty of St. Louis Cathedral. And for a really remarkable experience, come back after nightfall and make thrilling, chilling memories amidst the swirling jazz music, the clatter of horsecarts, and the glow of neon lights.
Eat frighteningly delicious foods
If your stomach starts rumbling during your busy day of exploring, you're in luck. New Orleans is famous for its delicious Southern-inspired dishes, and for good reason. One bite of these delicacies will have you screaming (with joy).
Gumbo: A thick stew made of butter and flour, topped with meats and veggies, seasoned with spices, and served over rice.
Po-Boy: A French bread sandwich piled high with veggies, meat and/or seafood, and pickles, slathered with sauce or mayonnaise.
Beignets: A delicious pocket of fried dough topped with powdered sugar - like a doughnut, but better.
Take a spine-tingling tour
Of course, a city as historic as New Orleans has a wealth of history you can explore through guided tours. Get in the Halloween spirit with a un-boo-leviable Ghost and Vampire Tour where you'll walk past and through some of the most haunted locations in the city and learn their history. For true crime junkies out there, our True Crime Tour will teach you everything you've ever wanted to know about the darker, bloodier side of New Orleans. Or if spooky isn't your style, take a stroll through the Garden District or soak up some jazz.
Whether you're in search of thrills, chills, or a little of both, you'll find them in New Orleans!
