As you enter this world of stained glass and and hidden chambers, remember: you can checkout any time you like, but you can never leave.

Palaces for the dead. Bob Dylan said in his book Chronicles that “the first thing you notice about New Orleans are the burying grounds, the cemeteries.” Its no wonder the troubadour took notice of the mausoleums that can be spotted all over the city. Just like so many other things in The Big Easy, they bury their dead differently, in a way that is unique to this place. While beautiful, the cemeteries in New Orleans can also be creepy, especially in October when we look extra hard for ghosts and ghouls in the shadows.
