We visited this cemetery and Lake Lawn across the highway and both are spectacular in different ways. I've always been a bit of a cemetery buff coming from New England with the old slate stones and puritan symbolism, but the ornate crypts and mausoleums were...More

Do not spend any money on tours! This is free...I had a rental car so I drove around and toured the city only using Google. There is no need to spend extra money. New Orleans is an expensive place.

We rode the Canal St trolley down to the cemeteries. You can drive in to Cypress but it is small. Anyway what a neat place to see and a must see while in NOLA. The tombs are some amazing works of art and the craftsmanship...More

Just get the streetcar marked "cemeteries" and get off at the terminus. These places are really interesting and you can spend hours looking around. They are not creepy although I felt that taking photos was not quite the correct thing to do. Some real history...More

Driving along the freeway, you can view the cemetery. We made plans to visit. The children were a bit apprehensive, but eventually got over it and began to listen to the rich history attached to the tombs and mausoleums. It was a good history lesson...More

We took a trolly car from downtown New Orleans to the end of the line, which was at Greenwood Cemetery. It looked interesting and we had nothing better to do, so we went in for a look. There were other tourists inside, but we didn't...More

A small taste of a NOLA cemetery. You can drive slowly through the cemetery which was appealing. We had the place to ourselves on a Sunday morning so we could get out and check out the unique style of burial in the city. The tours...More

Who puts cemeteries on their list of tourist stops? This girl! Typically they freak me out, but you can only go during the day in NOLA. It's definitely a site to see with the impressive mosoleums. We went to Greenwood first and it was nicer...More

It was raining when we visited Cypress Grove, but it was still worth it. I think any of the cemeteries are going to offer an interesting experience.

I've always wanted to see up close/in person how the city cemeteries are. There were headstones from the very early 1800s, and I wished I'd been on a walking tour so that I could have asked questions and learned more.
