Tips from the community
Visit a cemetery (⅘ of the historic ones are free entry): New Orleans is what some call an acropolis - a city of the dead. One of the reasons for this is the above ground cemeteries that quite literally resemble small communities due to the mausoleums. The deceased cannot be buried in New Orleans as the city is below sea level. Instead, all cemeteries feature above ground tombs. Four of the five famous cemeteries in New Orleans can be accessed for free (with St. Louis no. 1 as the exception) so check them out!

Although the city offers plenty of exciting attractions, some of the completely free adventures I’ve taken have been my favorite. This city is proof that travel doesn’t always have to break the budget. Check out some of my favorite free things to do in the Big Easy from tours to live entertainment.
