Many years since I have been in New Orleans, October 30 & 31. What or where are the most fun adult activities? Eight adults are making this trip and leaving the kiddies with g'parents.

I've been to NO twice for Halloween and as someone who doesn't have kids and stays away from 'family friendly fun' -- I will say that you're going to have a blast especially if you're staying in the Quarter. There are 2 parades that run through - try to catch at least one. The best areas to hang out, show off your costumes and people watch are naturally Bourbon St and the area outside of Molly's - we always stop at Pirates Alley to take a breather from the crowds. Last year we walked over to Frenchmen St but regretted it immediately - the entire street was so packed that you literally couldn't move - it was a riot waiting to happen and the atmosphere was actually scary with a really bad vibe - it took us about an hour to make our way through the crowd and get out of there, not sure if it's like that every year but based on that one experience we won't be going back to that area at least not late towards the end of the night like we did. Outside of NO, we've always wanted to make it to the House of Shock but still haven't gotten around to it - it's suppose to be awesome but maybe a little too scary for some people I've heard. There's also The Mortuary haunted house on Canal St but I also haven't been there and couldn't say if it's worth a visit or not. Check out Nola.com for more info on events and things to do for Halloween.

Have fun - wish I was there
