Summer rates make it easy to plan a New Orleans trip on a budget

June 14 2013 | News

School is out, the temperature is rising, and you’ve been talking about a vacation for far too long without actually doing anything about it. Well, it’s time.  The low summer rates for Hotel Provincial are finally here, and with room prices starting at just $89, we’re making it easy on the wallet. Now is the perfect time to plan that trip to The Big Easy.

Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest have already passed, but there are still a lot of great festivals happening in the city throughout the summer.  If you haven't been to New Orleans on the Fourth of July, then make it a priority this year. The fireworks show, which features two spectacular fireworks displays shot from dueling barges on the Mississippi River, is not to be missed.  Because local businesses and attractions usually offer discounts on this day, it’s easy to plan the trip that’s perfect for you, and on a budget. Romantic getaway? Family vacation? You make the call. Either way, watching the fireworks is an amazing way to end your night.

Another fun event happening in July is the San Fermin in Nueva Orleans (Running of the Bulls). In that quirky New Orleans signature style, the bulls you’re running from are actually the Big Easy Rollergirls and select participants from other roller derby leagues across the country.

Of course, all of the restaurants, museums, theatres, zoo and other attractions will be waiting for you.

So stop what you're doing and make a reservation. You deserve it.
