The Perks of Living on the Parade Route

Carnival season is here! Everyone is busy gearing up for parades by staking out the perfect spots for enjoying the festivities, stocking up on juice boxes for the little ones and beer for you, and getting their purple, green and gold ready.

The perks of living on the parade route are highly-coveted during Carnival season for so many reasons. Not everyone has this luxury, but those that do may be scrambling around a little less than you during parade season.

The recently transitioned apartments to luxury condominiums at 1201 Canal are located in the heart of New Orleans, perfectly situated for viewing New Orleans most renowned Mardi Gras parades, including Endymion, Bacchus,and Zulu.

No longer will you have to go out searching hours before the parades to track down a small spot to lay out your your tarp and set up your childrens’ viewing ladders! Simply walk out of your apartment and you’re only feet away from the parades safely behind the barricades.

We all could use a drink refresher, a snack and a bathroom break between parades. Lucky for 1201 residents and their guests, they can just run up to their condo and enjoy convenient hotel-style amenities. No more searching for public restrooms or dealing with dreadful porta potties. 1201 Canal’s location means you will spend more time enjoying the parades!
