New Orleans is a city famous for many things. We’re famous for our food, our festivals, our attitude, our music, and our history, just to name a few. There is just something about this place that is special, and our rich culture has been in the making for about 300 years. That deep and complicated history is part of what makes New Orleans so mysterious and alluring. With early residents like pirates, prostitutes, thieves, and voodoo queens; and hard times of slavery, wars, fires, and floods, it’s no wonder we have some ghost stories of our own.
With plenty of history tours available in New Orleans, your experience wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t jump on to one of the haunted tours educating about ghosts, vampires, voodoo, cemeteries, and the underworld of New Orleans. To the cynics, at first they can seem a bit silly, but the more you learn about our city’s wild past, and hear about the personal accounts of haunting encounters, the more you will feel the spiritual energy that permeates throughout this city, especially in the historic French Quarter.
Don’t be surprised if you walk into a building, or walk down a small street, catch a certain breeze and feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. Countless locals and tourists have shared eerie stories of run-ins with spirits that can only be explained as supernatural. Many visitors come to test the haunted rumors about the city and leave believers.
The great part about these haunted tours is that through intrigue, and a bit of fun, you really get a chance to learn about some of the dark and fascinating points in history that shaped the vibrant culture of New Orleans we know today.
