New Orleans Spooktacular Halloween

If you want to get your spook on then I have the perfect place for you. New Orleans is a spooktacular place to go and a family friendly city for all ages. It has many spooky places that you can visit, but here are some of the best spots to get your scare on.
There are haunted tours of the French Quarter and haunted houses in Uptown and the Garden District. Most haunted houses are advertised in the newspaper put on by churches, organizations, and private individuals. Some parental discretion is advised for some of the houses are too scary for young children. One place that is family friendly is the Audubon Zoo, which has it's annual "Boo at the Zoo" that involves trick or treating, entertainment, food, scary stories, a haunted house, rides, and the opportunity to get close to some of the zoo animals. Another place is the Louisiana Children's Museum and they host Halloween events and activities for younger children.


Voodoo shops are all along the French Quarter which helps enhance the spiritual feel of New Orleans. Some shops only give their service to vampires and sometimes plan special events for Halloween. There is also Voodoo music which is bringing in very popular names like, Florence + The Machine, Girl Talk, Ozzy Osbourne, DeadMau5.

Let me know if you have ever been to New Orleans and what your experience was like I'd love to hear your stories.

I love to travel with my family and going somewhere I have never been before. It excites me when I can get to go to places that I have seen in the movies. Also, to experience the place you have been to is what I think is one of the most important parts about traveling. The other important part about traveling is making memories, because there is always that lasting memory of some vacation that will never go away.

I am hoping to cover excessive planning vacations, road trips, spontaneous trips, and long term vacations. I think that these vacations are the broadest types of vacations there are. People should definitely read this blog because if anyone is thinking of a road trip, flying somewhere or taking a two week vacation, they will definitely be able to get ideas from me.
