Trends / Spring Break

New Orleans is famous around the world for its annual Mardi Gras festival, but did you know it also comes alive during spring break? The wealth of bars, eclectic culture and incredible music make it a favorite among college students looking to cut loose, along with adults looking to get away for a week.

 

Bourbon Street is well known for its bustling nightlife, which somehow manages to come even more alive during the spring when thousands of spring breakers descend upon the city’s most famous road. Here you’ll find dozens of bars blaring music and offering delicious drinks, while filled to the brim with partiers. Beach on Bourbon is the place to go if you’re looking to bust a move, while Razoo offers a somewhat less crazy atmosphere, though still packed.

 

During the day there’s tons to see around town. Explore the French Quarter and its beautiful architecture, or wander around and visit any of the dozens of eclectic shops. It might be fun to explore the city’s voodoo history and have your palm read. There are also plenty of outdoor activities to be had, especially along the Mississippi River. Take a boat tour or simply stroll along the harbor.

 

While New Orleans might not offer the greatest beaches in the country, it’s a wonderful option for anyone looking to get a little wild in one of the most culturally rich cities on Earth.

Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.

Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
