Fat Tuesday is just around the corner and for many that means indulging in great Cajun dishes, extra strong cocktails, and some beads (of course). Every year, thousands of people are drawn to the Big Easy, flooding the streets as they celebrate Mardi Gras. Make it a celebration to remember by planning a trip to one of these NOLA B&Bs for some fancy-free partying, New Orleans style.
Find yourself directly on the parade route while enjoying your Mardi Gras stay at the Sully Mansion. Built in 1890 by architect Thomas Sully, this 9-room Queen Anne with 14-foot ceilings and original stained-glass windows is located in the Garden District steps from fashionable Magazine Street. The B&B has fourteen-foot ceilings with original plaster medallions, wide pine plank flooring, a large wraparound porch, antiques and many special touches which embody the grace and charm of a bygone era yet with all the modern-day conveniences.
Catch some of the best parade sights as you watch from the doorstep and balcony at the Grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast located in the Garden District. Nestled under the shady oaks of majestic St. Charles Avenue, the renovated 7,600 square foot historic mansion is the picture of New Orleans, decorated with period furnishing to emulate the original style. Each room features a private bath, personal central air and heat controls, telephone, cable TV and complimentary Wi-Fi.
Take in the natural beauty of majestic oak trees and enjoy the convenience of great local shops and restaurants, convenient public transportation, and so much more, when staying at the Chimes Bed and Breakfast. Located in the Uptown/Garden District area provides plenty of opportunity to explore all that NOLA has to offer. The inns features five unique guests rooms, all of which have their own private entrance, and breakfast, parking, and Wi-Fi are all included.
