Find Romance in New Orleans

January 30th, 2012 by bbnola

Sometimes there is nothing more romantic than staying in when everyone else is out.


New Orleans is romantic. Come see.

February in New Orleans means Mardi Gras. Parades and celebrations take place all over the city. Throngs of people participate because it’s rowdy and it’s fun.

While they’re dancing in the streets, curl up with your sweetie at a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast. While they’re partying in a club, find an intimate corner in a quiet restaurant. While they’re sleeping in, sneak out to watch the sun rise over the city.

New Orleans is infused with romance. It’s in the beautiful old homes, the intimate courtyards, the dark jazz clubs. It’s a city that awakens the lover in us all.

Bring your lover to a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast this February, and give yourself over to romance.

Mardi Gras; it's a good show.

We who live and work in New Orleans believe that every person should experience at least one New Orleans Mardi Gras Celebration in a lifetime. Call it prejudice or call it a heartfelt desire to share a good thing. As innkeepers of New Orleans Bed and Breakfasts, we can’t help but want to show off our hometown when it is dressed in its finest.

At the same time, we understand that not every person enjoys a crowd. In fact, some people simply can’t tolerate them. Mardi Gras Celebrations in New Orleans are a great deal of fun, but they can be crowded.

Folks interested in enjoying a taste of a New Orleans Mardi Gras without the crowds should consider arriving the week before Fat Tuesday itself. All y’all know how we love a parade, so it should be no surprise that many parades are scheduled in the weeks leading up to February 21, 2012.

As of this writing, there are two parades scheduled for Saturday, February 4, and two scheduled for Friday the 10th. There are to be three parades on the 11th and another four on Sunday the 12th. Linger in a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast over Valentine’s Day, then enjoy the Krewe of the Ancient Druids parade on the 15th.

The truth is that New Orleans is a great city any time of year. Mardi Gras is fun. If you want to get a taste of Mardi Gras without being overwhelmed by it, come to town before it gets in full swing. All the restaurants, shops, museums, and galleries will still be here, as will your favorite Bed and Breakfasts New Orleans.
