Take Me Away Tuesday Celebrates Mardi Gras

Since today is Fat Tuesday, we are going to take you away to New Orleans. The city has recovered from Hurricane Katrina and is back in business to welcome honeymooners and other tourists.

New Orleans is one of the most romantic cities in the country. Plan a destination wedding in the French Quarter. New Orleans offers magnificent churches of every denomination. In addition, there are exquisite antebellum homes, elegant hotels, sumptuous courtyards, parks and pavilions or intimate bed and breakfasts to accommodate every taste, every budget.


While you are there, take a guided tour to see all that has made New Orleans famous. Ride a riverboat in the moonlight. Take advantage of the city's laid-back atmosphere and schedule a couple's massage at a local spa.
