New Orleans Mardi Gras Travel Deals

mardigrasYou don’t have to be Catholic or even really understand the religious background of Mardi Gras to enjoy the party. In fact, it may help if you don’t know about the religious background. But either way, there is plenty to love about the famous Mardi Gras celebrations that take place in New Orleans every year – and plenty of people flock to the city to see the festivities first hand.

Because the crowds are so substantial for Mardi Gras in New Orleans, it definitely pays to do your homework when it comes to finding cheap airfare and saving money on your accommodation. The holiday itself is something of a moveable feast, since it relates to a religious holiday that isn’t always on the same day, but it’s always around the same time of year (and, if you’re in a counting mood, it’s always 47 days before Easter). This does make it a bit easier to plan your trip.

In this article, we’re going to give you some tips to finding travel deals for Mardi Gras in New Orleans, including how to find cheap airfare to New Orleans for the Mardi Gras party and some general tips about celebrating Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
