1 Catch a Zulu coconut at Mardi Gras

If you're going to Mardi Gras, keep your eyes peeled for the Zulu Parade. Rare and sought after, a Zulu coconut is the ultimate prize for all Mardi Gras on-lookers. Of course catching some beads is pretty fun too.

 

2 Have your fortune told in Jackson Square

Jackson Square is full of all local artists, palm readers, tarot card readers, and musicians. Stroll along the pedestrian mall, buy some art, and stop to see what the future holds for you.

3 Explore Oak Alley Plantation

If you really want the Anne Rice effect, take a trip out to Oak Alley Plantation to stroll under the 300 year old oak trees that provided the setting for the movie Interview with a Vampire.

4 Cool off with a New Orleans snowball

Snowballs are New Orleans' unique take on a cool summer treat. Hansen's Sno-Bliz is one of, if not the, most popular spots to order one. The list of flavors is long - we like chocolate and condensed milk.

5 Take the Zoo Cruise

The John James Audubon riverboat travels from the Aquarium to the Audubon Zoo along 7 miles of Mississippi river and New Orleans waterfront.

6 Go to Jazzfest

An incredible 10 days of music and culture. Too many big names to mention. Incredible food. Enough culture to last you a whole year.
