If Miami is one of the trashiest major metropolitan areas, than New Orleans is definitely the wildest. No other city in the nation hangs its hat on a weeklong celebration centered around women showing off their breasts for beads (and like most red-blooded American men, we don’t hate it). The girls of Mardi Gras hold a special place in our hearts, but even after Lent has come and gone, visitors are still guaranteed to have a good time. We’re not totally sure how your liver would be ably to handle five days of NOLA, but either way, we commend you.
The city is 100% worth hitting up for a weekend or as part of a longer road trip to somewhere like Gulf Shores or Destin, FL.
