French Quarter

“When it’s sunny and warm, I love to spend a day in the French Quarter. It’s so alive with all kinds of street performers and general weirdos, and there are a lot of great bars if you know where to look (HINT: mostly not Bourbon Street).” – Revivalists

St. Louis Cemetery No. 3

Less visited than its counterparts, Cemetery No. 3 offers a piece of rest and quietude for those both above and below ground. Established in 1854, each tomb recounts a chapter in New Orleans’ rich history—from immigration patterns to floods and yellow fever outbreaks. Walk the rows to see marble and stone gravesites that are themselves works of art.
