We went specifically to experience Mardi Gras and must say, it was the best experience of my life! Bourbon St. was packed all day and all night! Everyone was there to party and have a good time. The floats were amazing and got hit twice in the face with beads. By the second day, we had so many beads, I started giving mine away. I'm glad our …
Stroll around the main tourist area - the French Quarter, Canal Street, Riverwalk Plaza - a new outlet shopping mall which only opened a week ago!
The three of us then did a VIP City Tour - including the Superdome, French Quarter, St Charles street and the Garden District where all of the beautiful Antebellum (pre Civil War) homes are. Then it was off to the St Louis Cemetery to hear of the unique way people are interred ...
