A Spooky Backdrop

Why New Orleans for Halloween?

Paranormal enthusiasts crowd this iconic city, desperate to encounter phantoms and specters. Locals are quick to tell you that New Orleans is dense with their dearly departed.

Flashy funerals, above-ground cemeteries… Look alive, sunshine–you’re in the City of the Dead.

With their voodoo roots and their predilection for the dead, this town’s no stranger to the spookier side.

Those less interested in the strange or the spectral shouldn’t worry, though. The city’s unparalleled beauty will have even the most severe skeptics staying an extra night.
