So instead of the usual Tijuana/Cancun/Cabo (mis)adventures, a bunch of us who go to school in Missouri are thinking of road-trippin' it out to New Orleans for our Spring Break (March 22nd- 31st). Has anyone been in New Orleans over this period and if so, what's the atmosphere like? i hear Bourbon Street is pretty packed all year round, but what do ya'll say? also, some of my friends are under 21- do clubs/bars enforce age restrictions here or will it be pretty easy for an underager to party there?
I've also found this cute backpacker hostel online - India House- that is cheap and is getting rave reviews, but if anyone has ever stayed there, would be great to have some firsthand input. Any other reccomendations on what to do/see/eat/drink would be appreciated.
p/s: our route goes by Memphis, would it be worth it to stop a night there and check out Graceland and such? and if anyone has done the Missouri-Louisiana drive before, is there anything else worth stopping for along the way?
