Louisiana is known for being a very mysterious place. Some people call it spooky, eerie, weird, or just plain unsettling. I attribute a lot of that to our state just being very old, and unique. Or maybe it's just because we have voodoo, who knows?!

The Crazy Tourist has come up with a list of some of the most mysterious places in the world. If you are looking to head to some locations that are a little left of center this year, then put some of these fascinating places on your radar.
