Venue Info

Although they tend to get hot and crowded in the heat of the tourist season, cemeteries are integral to the very fiber of New Orleans, and St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 is probably the most popular. There are few better ways to commune with the city than by paying your respects. Even though most of its fame is due to the scene from Easy Rider that was filmed here, its crumbling mausoleums and old-world charm are cause enough to visit.
