Mardi Gras HOP

March 1, 2019 - March 6, 2019

Location: New Orleans, LA

Called “The Big Easy,” New Orleans is a melting pot of music, food and culture, and is one of the most fascinating cities in the United States. New Orleans is rich in history and is known for its many festive Mardi Gras parades.

Getting into the Mardi Gras spirit, the HOP will start with a meet-and-greet social, a wonderful welcome dinner with a yummy, traditional King Cake for desert.

What’s better than being above Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras!

Escapees has reserved one of the largest balconies in the French Quarter just for your Bourbon Street viewing, with access to unlimited premium bar and gourmet cuisine.

With this Mardi Gras HOP, enjoy day and night parades! During the Bacchus and the Zulu Parade, Escapees HOP attendees will have exclusive parade experiences, with private viewing seats to add to your first-class experience. Privileges to a local business is available in case of inclement weather. Food and drink will be available for purchase on these days.

Savor a break from the parades, as you relax and sip a glass of Southern sweet tea. Enjoy the rocking chairs on the porches of several of the South’s most beautiful historical plantations. See original artifacts, family heirlooms and the authentic slave cabins, where the West African folk tale of Br’er Rabbit was first recorded. This tour also includes a delicious lunch.
