What we love the most about New Orleans is that it doesn’t take a specific time like Spring Break to make the city trashy and fun. The place literally thrives on a party atmosphere year-round.
So if you’re in the South and driving west towards a place like Gulf Shores or Biloxi, do yourself a solid and stay in New Orleans for a night or two. Not only are you likely to pick up a new friend or two, how often can you say that you’ve had a real Hand Grenade on Bourbon Street? New Orleans’ infamous nature also means you’ll get to drink with people from all walks of life.
