It's going to be me and 2 good friends of mine, and we're looking to have some fun while we're down there. I realize Mardi Gras is in March so it probably won't be as crowded, but I guess my question is, would we still have a good time and will the French Quarter still be packed?

Initially we were thinking Vegas, but NOLA is cheaper and a shorter trip and we might have just as good of a time, so what can we expect down there?

The FQ shouldn't be packed, but it will be quite busy. I've lived here almost a year and it even seemed busy in the heat of summer! Check out other parts of the city, too. It's such a great place to visit. I kept on visiting and eventually moved here because I just had to!

I think the Greek Festival is that weekend, and the weather should be just about perfect!

Awesome, thanks for the response! I also read something about a World War 2 memorial of some sort? Definitely need to read up on NOLA before I visit,

Yes, the National WWII Museum is not far from the Quarter. There's so much to do here! Check out this website. There's a calendar of events, too:

The lake looked pretty high today but the city will be fine.
