So you’ve decided to leave Atlanta to explore the history and culture of New Orleans. Whether you’re staying in the Garden District or the French Quarter, a rental car will get you there in less than 30 minutes.

Some of the most popular spots to visit in New Orleans are the cemeteries. The two that are the easiest to get to would be St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, located in the French Quarter, and the Lafayette Cemetery No. 2 in the Garden District. The Lafayette Cemetery was also used in the filming of Interview with a Vampire. St. Louis Cemetery, and is where the famed Marie Laveau’s grave can be found. Locals and tourists alike, stop by her grave to follow a voodoo ritual and hope that their wish is granted.
