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 See an albino alligator

The Aquarium has a 350,000 gallon tank teeming with sharks, tarpin, sea turtles, and sawfish - and a rare albino alligator that you have to see with your own eyes.

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 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.

6 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.
