1. Lafayette Cemetery No. 1
Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 is one of the only cemeteries that is free and open to the public year round (barring Mardi-Gras). For those who would prefer a tour there is no need to book in advance. Gabrielle Richard is one of the many city approved tour guides who can be found at the gate offering free tours with a tipping option. In just thirty minutes she can educate you on a range of subjects including burial methods, religious traditions, and pop culture references.
