Greater New Orleans
What is it? There are dozens of noteworthy cemeteries in NOLA, but easily the most famous is St. Louis No. 1.
Why go? New Orleans inters its dead a little differently than the rest of the country. Due to the city’s high water table, coffins are safeguarded in mausoleums instead of buried, creating eerily beautiful “cities of the dead.” In addition to infamous Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau, St. Louis No. 1 will also be the final resting place for Nicolas Cage, who has erected a huge pyramid tomb for his interment.
