Best Freebies



Description:

It's easy to have fun in New Orleans without spending a cent. Come in April for French Quarter Fest, a free weekend-long festival of food and music. And during New Orleans parades, like the famous Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day Parade, catch free beads, cups, toys, and food from the riders on the floats. Of course, there is also free fun to be had on a daily basis in New Orleans. You can people watch on Bourbon, window-shop on Royal, or simply stroll through the unique and beautiful French Quarter. Musicians, gymnasts, magicians, and other performers entertain tourists in and around Jackson Square every day for free, and the city is full of public parks for playing and relaxing. Check out the free Besthof Sculpture Garden at City Park, or give yourself a tour Lafayette Cemetery in the beautiful Garden District. Take the free ferry across the Mississippi and stroll through historic Old Algiers, or drive out to Jean Lafitte Swamp. You can walk for free on the many trails through the Barataria Reserve, where you're almost guaranteed to see a gator or two! On Thursday nights from 5 to 11, the bar at Hotel Le Cirque serves free never-ending glasses of champagne for ladies, and on Fridays the NOmadic belly dancers perform for free at the Dragon's Den around 9 o'clock.
