St. Louis Cemetery No. 1

St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 is the most popular cemetery in New Orleans, so popular in fact that they have closed it off to the public, and now it is only accessed by guided tour groups. Even still, there are so many tour groups going through there all day every day that you can barely move or get a photograph without people in it.

Cemeteries in New Orleans are a popular tourist attraction anyway, but St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 is even more so due to the number of famous graves there.
