It's June in NOLA and our calendar is heating up

June 1 2023 | News


Yeah, it’s hot in New Orleans in June. We’re not going to deny it. You could chargrill an oyster on the sidewalk if you were so inclined, but we have a better idea. Get yourself a big frozen daiquiri and walk around one of these festivals in the Vieux Carré and beyond. What? You’d rather stay home and mow the lawn? (We didn’t think so.) But here’s the best part. Hotel Provincial offers great rates in the summertime. Book now.
