6 Reasons Beyond Mardi Gras You Need to Visit New Orleans
New Orleans. What do you think of when you hear that city’s name?
Is it Mardi Gras? Does your mind immediately conjure images of Bourbon Street? Do you think of parade floats, of feathers, of crowds of people with purple/green/gold beads strung around their necks? Of lots and lots of alcohol?
Probably. And you’re not wrong for it. Mardi Gras and New Orleans go hand-in-hand.
But — and it may sound like a cliché — New Orleans has so much to offer beyond Mardi Gras. I visited for a long weekend last February. I arrived the day after Mardi Gras. And I wouldn’t have changed a thing.
I had a whirlwind three days overflowing with decadent food, kaleidoscopes of color, euphoric sounds, and an immense amount of fun. It’s your prerogative if you’re only going to party, but you’ll be missing out on so much if that’s all you have in mind for your trip.
