New Orleans, La.
With a history of slavery, voodoo and criminals in its past, New Orleans
is known as one of America's most haunted cities. The LaLaurie house is
haunted by tortured slaves, while the Le Pavilion Hotel has
a cheerier ghost in the form of a 1920s gentleman who likes to play
pranks on the cleaning staff. At the St. Louis Cemetery, visitors can
ask the Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau, a favor by knocking on her crypt
three times and leaving her a gift.
