There are some things in life—Mardi Gras in New Orleans, for example—that mere words cannot adequately explain, especially when it comes to why the Crescent City’s vibrant pre-Lenten celebration is one of those singular experiences everyone ought to have. And yet, so profound is our belief in this notion that we feel we must at least attempt to support our assertion or, at a minimum, give you the tools you’ll need to discover for yourself why Mardi Gras in New Orleans should be on everyone’s bucket list.
Editor's Note: Check ahead for the most current COVID-19 policies in New Orleans. As of February 2022, many establishments in the city continue to require visitors older than age 5 to prove vaccination or have a negative PCR test result within 72 hours to permit entry. Also expect to wear a mask indoors. Sound confusing? Contact your local AAA office; a AAA Travel Agent can help make sense of the changing travel conditions.
