Although Mardi Gras is known as “the Greatest Free Show on Earth” and parades are free to view on public streets and boulevards, there’s nothing like having a clean restroom, free-flowing drinks and great New Orleans food close by – not to mention a balcony view of the crowds below after the parades. Check out these great packages either on or near the parade route and in the French Quarter after the parades.
