There's only one month left until Mardi Gras, and that means it's time to start planning your RV vacation to New Orleans. Spending Mardi Gras in New Orleans is something everyone should do at least once, and if you've already been, you know there's no better time to visit the city again. Pack your beads and masks and head to the Big Easy for one of the best parties in the country.

Where to Stay

Whether you want to stay right near the action or prefer a quaint campground to return to after a long day of partying, New Orleans has a campground to suit your desires.

The New Orleans West KOA, in Jefferson Parish, is just a short distance from the French Quarter and the casino. The large sites feature gorgeous shade trees and all of the amenities you need to feel right at home.

For a little more private camping experience, head to Pontchartrain Landing. This waterfront park offers full hook-ups, free WiFi, a pool and Jacuzzi. It's the perfect place to unwind after a day of dancing, eating, shopping and parades.

Where to Play

Although Bourbon Street is probably the most popular place in the city on Mardi Gras, there are events happening all over town to ensure you get the full New Orleans experience. Don't miss out on all of the incredible parades starting on Feb. 15 and continuing through March 4. Parades are held in Slidell, the French Quarter, Metairie, Uptown, the West Bank and tons of other places throughout the city, so check the schedule and be sure to see a few.

If you've got an extra day in the city, don't forget to stop by the Mardi Gras exhibit at the Louisiana State Museum to learn a little more about this historic event.
