We're loosely considering the idea of visiting NO for Easter this year. The parades look like a lot of fun and at least for this holiday, they appear to be family-friendly. We visited for a conference a few years ago, and it was so much fun I decided I really want to come back to experience it more fully. It's such a quirky and fun, different place where oddness is celebrated and the arts (culinary, musical, and visual) are thriving. A cacophony of culture. What kinds of fun things have you done in New Orleans? What was your occasion for visiting? Do you think you'll go back?
