Halloween is right around the corner and you don't have any party plans?! How about the ultimate Halloween party in one of the most haunted cities in America? Ditch that candy bowl, call your air charter broker, and get that private jet in position because you're heading to New Orleans! Well maybe not, but if you wanted to here's a blog to help you navigate the city.
New Orleans has a tour for just about every kind of traveler. We recommend you start with the historic French Quarter tours before exploring all the great Cajun food on one of the many culinary tours. Don't want to walk? Take the horse and carriage tour! And of course, you can't visit New Orleans without getting into a quick Mardi Gras tour. If spooky tours are more your style, how about a cemetery? Since the city rests below sea level, the deceased must be buried above ground in stone crypts or mausoleums which makes for a unique tourist attraction.
If you opt for that cemetery tour, make sure to visit the tomb of the legendary Voodoo Queen of New Orleans, Marie Laveau. Hundreds of visitors make their way to Laveau’s tomb each year in hopes her spirit will grant them a wish (I wish for a private jet). Tours aren't your thing? Grab the kids and head down to the annual Krewe of Boo parade, New Orleans’ official Halloween parade.
Whatever you decide, get ready for the thrill and start planning your private flight to New Orleans.
How Do You Get There?
New Orleans is serviced by Lakefront Airport (NEW) and Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY).

Or go ahead and gather your closest family and friends and plan a large group air charter into Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) for the spookiest time of the year.
