Mix and match convenient flights and luxury hotels like a ghostly cocktail. As you plan your exquisite getaway, consider these guest favorites:
The French Quarter has a large concentration of hotels in New Orleans, and features many of the city's most well-known landmarks. In the center of the Quarter is Jackson Square, a central gathering space surrounded by local artwork, horse drawn carriages, and the St. Louis Cathedral. The city's spacious City Park is home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, Sculpture Garden, and bike paths. If you don’t book your New Orleans package deals for Mardi Gras, visit Mardi Gars World any time during the year to see the famed floats up close and learn about the city's favorite holiday.
You could spend your entire vacation in New Orleans without ever leaving the French Quarter, it’s true, but you’ve got to follow the Mighty Mississippi south to the Garden District and Audubon. True to its name, the Garden District is a quiet and lush corner of the city center where Victorian homes and historic cemeteries are overgrown with palm trees and nostalgia. Farther to the southwest, Audubon Park is otherworldly. Nibble on a picnic among antique fountains as winged creatures perch on the edge of whimsical bird baths. These moments must be why they call it The Big Easy.
As we’ve noted, Mardi Gras is the city's most famous festival. The weeks-long event includes parades of elaborately decorated floats, marching bands, dancing groups, and coveted beads. After Mardi Gras come two of the city's best known music festivals. Beginning in April dance to the melodies of the French Quarter Festival, which is four days of live music. Come the last weekend of April and first weekend of May, when the Jazz and Heritage Festival sweeps through the city. Festivals truly span from January to December in this city of celebration, and many of them are free to join, which enriches any cheap vacation in New Orleans with culture and comradery.
