Visit the home of Mardi Gras

New Orleans is well known for its extravagant Mardi Gras celebrations, and the city goes all out every February or March when the occasion arrives. The city’s thriving with activity, but Bourbon Street is where the main action happens. The balcony-fronted street looks impressive by day, but really comes to life at night. Neon signs buzz and flicker and there are plenty of bars embodying the party atmosphere.
