The Best Places to Celebrate Mardi Gras in your California RV Rentals

Posted on Jan 20, 2016

Most people looking to create unforgettable Mardi Gras memories won’t hesitate visiting New Orleans during the raucous February celebrations.  Here at 1st Choice RV, however, we urge you to think twice about heading to The Big Easy and instead rent a Calabasas RV and check out what The Golden State has to offer.  There are countless unique and fun celebrations up and down the coast that are perfect to explore with Los Angeles RV rentals.  Check out the following celebrations as add-ons to your Los Angeles motorhome rentals vacation, or create your own Mardi Gras mayhem this February!

Point your Los Angeles RV Rentals South to the San Diego Mardi Gras Festivities

San Diego plays host to the state’s largest Mardi Gras celebration in their historic Gaslamp Quarter.  On Saturday February 6th, from 5pm to Midnight, head to downtown San Diego where you will be transported to the sights, sounds, and smells of The Big Easy.  Over the course of these seven hours you can enjoy the annual parade, five stages with world-renowned DJs spinning dance music on visually stimulating stages, live street musicians, and special New Orleans cuisine.  As a 21+ event, the annual block party is the perfect stopover on your California RV rentals road trip as you fill your Calabasas RV with all of your closest friends.

No Shortage of Celebrations in the City of Angels

Before leaving the city on your Los Angeles motorhome rentals road trip, consider hanging around to take part in one of the city’s many Mardi Gras celebrations.  As the largest city on the West Coast, it should come as no surprise that the nightlife surrounding Mardi Gras weekend is off the wall.  Countless clubs and bars around Los Angeles will be throwing holiday-themed parties, and the biggest challenge for you is to decide which one/s to attend!  For those planning a family vacation in their California RV rentals, visit the LA Farmers Market Mardi Gras Festival.  For one weekend each year, you can enjoy authentic Cajun cuisine, zydeco music, and parades while soaking up the warm Southern California sun.

A Cajun Carnival for Northbound Calabasas RV Roadtrips

If you dream of exploring Northern California after selecting one of our Los Angeles RV rentals, yet still hope to celebrate Mardi Gras, consider heading into the foothills of the Sierras to Nevada City.  During the weekend of February 13 and 14th, this sleepy mountain town will transform into your Cajun Headquarters!  Complete with parade, costume ball, authentic food and music, and plenty of activities for the whole family, Nevada City is the perfect stopover when exploring the beauty of Northern California in your Los Angeles motorhome rentals.

As you begin to plan your Golden State road trip, and realize you will be in our state during one of the world’s largest party weekends, consider seeing how Californians do Mardi Gras!  Whether you visit San Diego, Los Angeles, Nevada City, or any number of other celebrations across the state, your adventure starts here, at 1st Choice RV!  Give us a call today to reserve the perfect vehicle for your needs, and get ready for one unforgettable vacation!
