The Big Easy has been a hotspot for the undead ever since Louis and Lestat prowled the streets in Interview With The Vampire. These days, toothy types flock here for the up-till-dawn nightlife and creepy-cool shops like Boutique du Vampyre, which even sells custom fangs to wannabes—the better to feast on boudin rouge (blood blood sausage, a local specialty).
Where to Bed: Located at the gateway to the French Quarter, the 125-year-old Hotel Monteleone plays host to ghosts, vampire conventions, and honeymooners alike. Thirsty? Have a seat at the Carousel Bar, a circular 25-seat bar that actually revolves, so you can easily scope out the room for your next target.
