New Orleans is a quick getaway for most Texans; nevertheless, the city feels worlds apart from the everyday. Live music, mouthwatering Cajun and Creole cuisine, historic neighborhoods and a legendary nightlife make this culture-rich hot spot a must-see (and a must-see-again).
This time of year, New Orleans is readying its purple, green and gold for one of its biggest festivities—Mardi Gras Feb. 17.
Stay on the parade route at the Royal St. Charles, a Destination Hotel located a block from the French Quarter and Canal Street.
The three-night Mardi Gras Experience package, Feb. 15-18, includes junior suite accommodations, roundtrip airport limo service and gourmet coffee and mini king cakes for two from awardwinning PJ’s Coffeehouse.
This boutique hotel captures the bright and quirky joie de vivre that makes New Orleans one of the South’s most entertaining destinations.
