The famed multi-week carnival culminates this year on March 4 - also known as “Fat Tuesday” - and promises to end your winter blues with its unique brand of devil-may-care hospitality. Internally renowned for its one-of-a-kind parades, colorful costumes and beads, jazz rhythms, historical landmarks, and Cajun cuisine, Mardi Gras is the celebration to end all celebrations.

What’s the big deal about partying in the “Big Easy” during Mardi Gras? Plenty. You can bar-hop down the famed Bourbon Street. Dance to Zydeco at an out-of-the-way blues club. Sample jambalaya in the French Quarter. Shop on the eclectic Magazine Street. Or catch your favorite krewe marching in one of the numerous parades.

But one thing - you have to start planning today. Like now. New Orleans. is filling up fast for Mardi Gras. And that’s where we come in. Last Minute Travel and LMT Club can help you save during your stay with some pretty sweet deals on these New Orleans hotels through March 31, 2014.
