1 Tour Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World

Visit the warehouses where they construct the giant floats of Mardi Gras at Mardi Gras World, and watch the artists first hand.

2 Suck on a crawfish head

You can't say you've done New Orleans without mastering the art of eating crawfish. Order a pound of boiled crawfish at Acme Oyster then get down to business.

3 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.

 

4 Go antiquing on Magazine Street

Magazine Street has some great antique stores for all sorts of plantation and early New Orleans styles, as well as other European and American classics. It's a great place to spend a few leisurely hours.

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 Spend Christmas in New Orleans

New Orleans is a great place for Christmas. The streets are lit up, actors dressed in period costume wander about, and you feel like you have the city all to yourself. Oh, and the weather is glorious.
