Haunted Louisiana

Louisiana's history is steeped in hauntings, paranormal activity and things that make you think you might have seen a ghost. Louisiana's ghost hauntings are famous and New Orleans has been named one of the most haunted cities in the nation. Restaurants like Arnaud's, for example, are rumored to have resident ghosts who range from charming and friendly to eerie and disturbing. Not to mention, the city is home to the St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, home to Voodoo priestess Marie Laveau. Laveau is one of the many famous residents said to haunt the area. 

It’s been said that Louisiana’s complex early history has made perfect conditions for ghosts to haunt and linger. From haunted hotels to historic homes like Myrtle Plantation, explore the spooky side of Louisiana with guided tours, cemetery visits and if you are brave, haunted accommodations. Even Louisiana's Neo-Gothic Old State Capitol building is said to house the ghost of a former senator, whose large footprints have appeared on the senate floor. If you're visiting around Halloween, take in a fright night at the 13th Gate in Baton Rouge or The Mortuary in New Orleans.
