~Haunted Homes. There are a lot of haunted house tours. Click here for variety of tours. If possible, take a night haunted home tour, because it’s cooler and adds to the haunting feeling :)
A couple of homes to mention:
Hermann-Grima – This mansion has a courtyard garden, horse stable and functional 1830’s outdoor kitchen in the Quarter. It’s said that the ghost in this home scatter scented rose and lavender around the rooms and light the fireplaces.
Bearegard-Keyes House – This was once the home of Confederate General Beauregard. During the night, people see horrible visions of the Battle of Shiloh, with blood splattering on the wall and hearing the wounded soldiers.
LaLaurie Mansion – Probably one of the best known haunted homes. Madame Lalaurie and her husband used to have very ritzy parties, they were the talk of the town for parties to attend. What the guests didn’t know was that on the third floor, slaves were being tortured and mutilated. I won’t go into the details, but it’s gruesome.
