I know New Orleans used to have a big goth subculture, but I'm wondering how things are these days. Are there any good clubs or dance nights still happening? Any other spooky things I should check out? (besides the cemeteries, of course)

Hey, everyone! After years of wanting to visit, I finally have the chance to stay in NOLA for a few days! While I do appreciate things to do in the city, I'm really lookin forward to exploring the outdoors, especially the bayous and swamps. Any recommendations from previous travellers or locals? It'd be awesome if you could specify if it's just roamin on land or if there's a chance of a on-water experience. It doesn't have to be right next to NOLA, but I guess I'll most likely be unable to visit any that are super far. Also...what's the difference between a swamp and a bayou? Thanks - have a good day!

bayou - a slow moving river/stream
swamp - a wetland that is dominated by woody stem plants (trees and bushes) rather than herbaceous plants (flowers, grasses, etc.)
marsh - a wetland that is dominated by herbaceous plants rather than woody stem plants.
If you want to see swamps close to the city, Baritaria Perserve (Part of Jean Lafitte National Park systems) is only a 30 min drive from NOLA. You will need a car though. I'm not sure if it's the right season to see alligators though. I would call and ask to see if they will be out, of if they are hibernating. It would still be cool to see the swamps and the cypress trees with all the Spanish moss. A bayou is basically a river (an outlet of a lake or river). Not all bayous are swampy looking. There are boat swamp tours that you can, but those are definitely gator oriented, although you can see other swamp animals. I have a whole PDF of other suggestions. PM me your email address and I can email it to you. When are you here?

New Orleans is a city, so your desire to see swamps in or near New Orleans won't happen. You may wish to do a tour first and then see if you can revisit the places you toured. But a swamp is pretty stagnant whereas a bayou is a water way, but depending on who you talk to they are the same.

My (2) friends and I planned on making a one night stay/trip for Halloween, and then I discovered Voodoo fest. My friends have to get back but I'm considering making it a long weekend in New Orleans. I would love any insight into this festival, the venue, location, etc.; especially relating to how to know which days the artists are playing. I am debating about which ticket to buy.
The fest is pretty good, and cheap considering some big names that show up! The venue is outdoors, it's fun because it's halloween, and it's located in City Park in New Orleans. You can sort the artists by date on this page: http://worshipthemusic.com/lineup/. One day tickets are on sale starting this Friday!

VooDoo fest is my favorite New Orleans festival, mostly because I love Halloween, but also the temperature here is perfect at that time of year, our other fests are mostly during times when the heat is brutal. I highly recommend staying for the weekend, especially if you like the lineup!

I'm coming to New Orleans June 10-13, and I was thinking about just sleeping in my hammock. However, I am concerned about safety, both for myself and my stuff, as well as recent bouts of rain. Does anyone have advice for where I could hammock (if it's not raining?) I have a car I need to keep parked somewhere safe as well.

I am going to New Orleans in December, for my birthday, and I would love to celebrate with a nice drink and some great jazz. Does anyone know a good place? Any other must go to places would be appreciated :)
