I am meeting a friend in NOLA from April 24 - April 28, 2013. I am breaking the bank just to fly out there, so I need some cheap (or free) things to do during the day - we already have most of our nights planned. I am interested in exploring the history of NOLA and especially love anything that purports to be "haunted". I love to explore anything that a particular location is "known for" and I enjoy shopping for unusual/local items. I am also up for any other suggestions, as I want to get the full NOLA experience. I will be staying near the Superdome but have no problem walking or riding public transportation. I really appreciate any help you can provide me, as I have never been to NOLA and would like to do everything I can because I am not sure when I will ever be able to visit again. Thank you!
