WHY: The Historic New Orleans Collection will once again feature “Historic Haunts: The Myths and Legends of the Vieux Carré” throughout the month of October. Introduced in 2009, the popular Halloween-inspired tour of The Collection’s Louisiana History Galleries explores the truth behind New Orleans’s more seedy legends and the French Quarter’s most infamous characters. The tour discusses the documented history and how it may have inspired the legends, allowing attendees to decide on their own what is myth and what is grisly truth. Including the likes of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau, rumored sadistic slave-owner Madame Lalaurie and pirate Jean Laffite, the tour examines 10 “haunted” locations in the Quarter using research conducted at the Williams Research Center.
Tours are available daily Tuesday–Sunday, October 1–30, at 2 p.m. On Halloween Sunday, October 31, three tours will be offered, at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. “Historic Haunts” is intended for an adult audience. Admission is $5, free for THNOC members.

Attractions In New Orleans
It seems as if everything my family use to go to in terms of Attractions In New Orleans is closed like Six Flags. I really can’t find anything that I think would entertain a bunch of college students. We are going down there to volunteer but of course we have to have fun while we are down there helping. What are some happening places that are Attractions In New Orleans for different age groups? Please take this question seriously, don’t reply with an answer if its not helping.
There’s still tons of Attractions In New Orleans. New Orleans has great shopping and eating. The Attractions In New Orleans are varied, to say nothing of all the great music there is to be heard. The French Quarter shops are mostly open, as are the Warehouse-Arts District and Magazine Street shopping district. And the festival season will kick off Labor Day weekend with Southern Decadence.
Before you go, to get an idea of the Attractions In New Orleans visit the Offbeat or Gambit Weekly web sites and check the entertainment listings for the shows, clubs and festivals that will be going on while you’re there.
Catch a show by one of New Orleans’ brass bands. Some of the best brass bands are New Birth Brass Band, Rebirth BB, Forgotten Souls BB and Soul Rebels BB. It’s a mix of jazz, funk, hip hop & sometimes r n’ b that’s great for dancing, and truly captures the spirit of the city.
Every Sunday, at Tipitina’s, there’s a Cajun Fais Do Do from 5pm-9pm. If you can, go one evening that features Bruce Daigrepont. His band is one of an elite few that are preserving the true spirit of Cajun music while updating it and making it relevant for a modern audience. Even if you don’t know anything about Cajun music, it’s worth going just to watch everybody dancing and to see this historic club. 501 Napoleon Ave. http://www.tipitinas.com/default.asp
Go to Mid-City Lanes, for bowling, music or both. They have lots of great rock, funk and zydeco shows, and you can bowl even if the band is playing. Geno Delafose, George Porter and Snooks Eaglin are among the best acts that play here pretty regularly. 4133 S. Carrollton Ave.
Go on a Haunted New Orleans tour with New Orleans’ greatest tour guide, Robert Florence. His company Historic New Orleans Tours is the best in town. I promise you won’t regret spending a couple hours with him as he tells ghost stories about the city. Tours happen daily, rain or shine. Visit the web site for the full list of available tours.
The Audubon Zoo & Aquarium have reopened
The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, a Smithsonian affiliate, has great folk, primitive and outsider art exhibitions.
Visit Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World. It’s a little bit hokey, but it’s still fun to see the factory where many of the Mardi Gras floats are made and view them up-close.
You could try to catch a Tulane University football game: http://www.tulanegreenwave.com
Eat muffalettas at Central Grocery, 923 Decatur Street.
Make sure and contact the Louisiana Tourist commission. They will have a list of the Attractions In New Orleans.
Attractions In New Orleans
I am visiting New Orleans in January 2009 and would like to know where are the hot spots? Are there any great restaurants, night clubs or other tourist attractions to try out? I will be coming with my job so it would definitely be after 5-6pm outings.
There is a restaurant on the corner of Conti and Bourbon called Ole New Awlins Cookery. I used to live in Baton Rouge area and have actually driven to New Orleans just to eat at this restaurant. I highly recommend the BBQ Shrimp. As for the haunted tours, they give a lot of false information but if that doesn’t matter to you it may be exciting. If into the haunted thing look up New Orleans ghost stories. If you find no info on that email me at email@example.com and I can forward you info on haunted places there.
