“Go everytime”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

Going to Metairie Cemetery is very interesting it is where the Orlginal race track was in the city. If you look along the Metairie Rd you can see where it was. There are also great structures inside a MUST see.

“Beautiful, Breathtaking, and Amazing”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

Many in New Orleans are put to rest in buildings nicer than most of the homes. Ann Rice will be laid to rest here. The founder of Popeye's Chicken is already here. Worth seeing.
