It is a must, you HAVE to experience the joy of Mardi Gras. One of the best times, I’ve ever had in my thirtyish years of living! New Orleans is in competition with Chicago in being my soulmate, so I’m already very in love with the city, the food and the people. Somehow experiencing Mardi Gras made Nola even more captivating!
Unfortunately/Fortunately I didn’t not see ANY parades as I had way tooooo much fun the evening before, and could barely roll myself out of bed. So I have to return again! When you find yourself in New Orleans for Mardi Gras, Make sure you check out Tropical Isle which is located at 721 Bourbon Str in the French Quarter.
