Portable toilets

Gotta go? Here’s where to pee (legally) during Carnival time

For when all those shots and daiquiris have gone straight through you.

It comes without warning. You’re standing on St. Charles Avenue, hands in the air, yelling for that next Muses shoe to add to your collection.

Then it hits you: you have to pee. Bad. All those shots and daiquiris have gone straight through you.

But, where? Turning around and peeing on the other side of the street near that bush looks good, but it’s illegal.

No worries, the City of New Orleans has an interactive map showing you where the port-o-potties are along the route. The bigger the circle, the more toilets at that location.

If you’re not the port-o-potty kind (because, gross), lots of churches, schools, restaurants and hotels along the route have bathroom options for a minimal fee.
