Things to do in New Orleans in October

The most New Orleans thing you can do around Halloween is to visit the Skelton House on the corner of St Charles and State Street.

Not only is the weather better in October - but football season begins.  In New Orleans, Football is life, and all local businesses will sport their Black and Gold to cheer on the New Orleans Saints.

Visit a Cemetery

October is the perfect time to take a cemetery tour. Not only does the cooler weather help with outside tours, but touring cemeteries in the New Orleans area is something every local and tourist needs to do!

Take a ghost tour

Take some time out of your evening by planning to learn a little history and maybe even get spooked while taking a ghost tour in New Orleans.
