    My g/f and I are planning a trip to New Orleans August 1 - 4 and I was hoping some of the locals could clue me in on some places to go besides the usual tourist traps. We'll be staying at the Pontchartrain Hotel and will have a rental car.

    Names/locations of some places to do the following would be really appreciated:

    Shopping (especially local specialty shops -- voodoo, witchcraft, gothic, headshops, etc)
    Swimming/Beaches/Water Parks
    Bars & other drinkning establiments
    Good Vampire/Haunted Tours

    Also am trying to find out about The Sanctuary(??)... open midnight til 6 am or something like that.

    Thanks in advance!!

    I found out about The Sanctuary which is actually The Dungeon but I am still looking for any other info the locals can provide :)
