Last month, I made my first visit to New Orleans for a bachelor party weekend (not my own). I long had sought to visit the city because of its well known historic architecture, but I had no idea there were so many remaining resources.
I was in the city fewer than 48 hours and spent most of that time doing what most people do in New Orleans (Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop is a must stop for an early American bar experience), so besides wandering around the French Quarter and Faubourg Marigny I didn’t get to see much. But I knew if there was one place I had to go before I left it had to be St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, the oldest remaining cemetery in the city and the location of the acid trip scene in “Easy Rider.”
