Your New Orleans Spring Break Guide

Spring break is scheduled so close to Mardi Gras, and yet so far. Don’t worry. The party in New Orleans never ends, and the festivities spill well over into spring break! All the fun, parties and glamour of the city are here for the taking. Enjoy an airboat tour through the bayou where you might be able to hold a fingerling (baby alligator), spot an albino alligator, and see stunning cypress trees.


Trek to Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar, the oldest bar in the country, tucked into the French Quarter of course. Or dine on turtle soup and the original bananas foster at Brennan’s. Indulge on jambalaya, fresh seafood and, of course, a hurricane cocktail or two. Whether you’re traveling with family, friends or solo, New Orleans never disappoints.

A Spring Break to Remember

There are countless top-ranked restaurants, bars and live jazz music venues to venture into. Stroll through the French Quarter and Bourbon Street day and night. Slip into a casino to test your luck, or take a trolley ride to Mardi Gras World and see the famous floats being prepped and stored for next year.

Bite into some King Cake and see if you get the lucky piece with the plastic baby, or shop for one of a kind masks at boutiques and shops throughout the city. Dining, dancing, drinking, and a rich cultural history make New Orleans a favorite spring break destination.
