I want to go. Have you went? Where is a good place to stay? Is it just on weekends? I don't know much about it, at all.
I'm looking there right now :)
You will probably be able to find better info here.
I live on the coast. We rarely go to the parades. But, did go to a few day parades in New Orleans this year, they were nice, I even took my children to those. They have a lot of parades in Mobile, Al as well.
Most Mardi Gras parades are on the weekend during the month of Mardi Gras. The whole weekend prior to fat Tuesday is full of parades and that Monday and Tuesday as well. You can stay just about anywhere on the coast and be near parades, just research where you want to go and the find a hotel. Everything is pretty expensive as far as hotels go, but you may luck out in finding something reasonable. Lots of people I know recommend renting a condo (expensive) in the French quarter and that way you are able to party, have access to a bathroom, can watch parades from the balcony of the condo, and avoid the massive crowds.
