Getting around New Orleans during Mardi Gras is a challenge. Main streets are blocked and you can’t get to many areas of the City at all. You can not get there from here during the parades and so you have to plan well in advance if you need to be somewhere..You can always walk but driving no so much. There are some great apps which map the parade routes and give you the times and road closures and if you are planning on being here during Mardi Gras I would recommend that you down load at least one of these and before you venture out to go anywhere you check if you can get there….all free and on the iTunes Store.
