Second to Mardi Gras for crazy, dress-up fun, Halloween is bringing with it a myriad of events for everyone. Did you know that our city has so much haunted history that it’s known as the “most haunted city in America?” It’s a fitting title for a city that puts on one seriously amazing Halloween party.
If exploring that side of things is your cup of tea, you may want to start out with one of the haunted tours being offered around town. There are several NOLA tour companies offering tours including, Bloody Mary’s Tours, French Quarter Phantoms, Ghost City Tours in New Orleans, Ghost Expeditions, Haunted History Tours, and New Orleans Secrets Tours.
One of the largest celebrations will be taking place on Frenchmen Street, just ten minutes from our inn. This area is just a stone’s throw from Bourbon Street and the French Quarter and is where you will find some amazing live music coming from the clubs that line the street. There is a host of late night eateries, an authentic art market, and an atmosphere that is just plain fun and lively.
