Guests will be transported back to the 1800s when Louisiana Creoles had to deal with their barbaric neighbors. In addition to its unique history, guests will enjoy blocks and blocks worth of gorgeous plantation-style mansions owned by celebrities like Sandra Bullock and John Goodman. Stroll the oldest above-ground cemetery uptown and learn about the odd funeral and burial traditions still practiced here.
