New Orleans has some of the best cemeteries in the country and Lafayette is one of my favorites. It's less popular than cemetery #1 and #2, but it's equally as beautiful and has lots of character.

While visiting the Garden District this is a must see. If you google free walking tours for this area, the cemetery tour will probably come up. We printed it and then took it with us. It was a wonderful tour and explained many things in detail. A lot of the people visiting that day also had the same tour.

The history in this area inspires awe. We did a free walking tour. A pamphlet explains some of the more famous tombs. History and stories just flows out of the cemetery. Definitely a must see for your trip.
