Mardi Gras not in the cards this year? No prob. New Orleans, Louisiana keeps the good times rolling no matter when your spring break falls. Jazz, and rhythm and blues hold sway accompanied by Cajun and Creole speciailties washed down with Hurricanes and Hand Grenades. Amtrak rolls with the good times, too: City of New Orleans from Chicago; Crescent from NYC and Atlanta; Sunset Limited from LA and Houston. From Amtrak's Union Passenger Terminal, NORTA's Rampart-St.Claude Streetcar heads east intersecting with the Canal Streetcar line and continuing on past Louis Armstrong Park (site of late spring's NOLA Jazz Festival) through the French Quarter. A Jazzy Pass gets you unlimited streetcar and bus travel for just three bucks a day.
