Anyone else already dreaming of spring break? Well, you definitely will be on board after this week's Snowtorious B.I.G.
TBH, we're pretty sure New York City starts collectively salivating for sunny weather once we have to dig out puffer jackets out of the back of the closet (sooo not chic).
Of course, NYC is the best (whooooo! go Yankees and all that), but seriously, this country has some pretty awesome cities that were made to be explored.
New Orleans, for example, which coincidentally reaches temps 77 and sunny skies during peak spring break season, has bars that are open 24/7, and, well, New Orleans Jazz Festival and Mardi Gras.
Are we just torturing you? Nah, we're going to send you and one lucky bud of yours to The Big Easy for the dopest Spring Break Getaway EVER.
We've put together an amazing package with our pals at Product Hunt Inc, Wine Awesomeness, Mic Network Ltd, Innovative Brands, CI Labs, and Morning Brew Daily.
You'll be getting a $1,000 gift card towards round-trip flights, and a $1,000 gift card for Airbnb, so you can explore the real NOLA.
Now, you might not exactly associate tech with New Orleans, but Collision is America's fastest growing tech conference. Over 20,000 people attend from more than 110 countries, and the speaker list includes the CEOs and Co-Founders of rapidly growing companies like Reddit, Twitch, and WeWork.
Other innovators who have participated in their events in the past include Google, Microsoft, Airbnb, Facebook, Samsung, Amazon, and more.
Your tickets will grant you access to knowledge about every major industry touched by technology, and will open doors to networking opportunities with some seriously important people.
The New Orleans Jazz Festival, which speaks for itself, is a 10-day cultural feast that attracts 400,000 people each year. There's a reason NOLA is considered the birthplace of Jazz– but this fest includes something for everyone.
This year's line-up includes Stevie Wonder, Maroon 5, Kings of Leon, Lorde, Snoop Dogg, Pitbull, Alabama Shakes, Darius Rucker, and many, many more diverse greats. There will be multiple stages of these amazing musicians, and more delicious Louisiana cuisine than you'll know what to do with.
We'll let you in on a not-so-little secret. There is nothing like Louisiana food. Seriously.
Now in its 47th year, the Jazz Festival is a must-see for all music (and food!) lovers, and anyone who wants to immerse themselves in New Orleans' incredible historical heritage.
So yeah, you could go black out in Cancun for a couple days (is that where the kids still go?), or, you could make this spring break's memories last you a life time.[Feature Image Courtesy premiumparking]
