Mardis Gras Getaway: Great Escape

Each week Naperville Patch will offer one great idea to give you a much deserved break and make life a little easier---maybe a whole lot easier.

Mardis Gras should not be a celebration that's reserved only to New Orleans. That's why we bring you this week's Fat Tuesday inspired Great Escape that lasts through the entire month of March.

We know it's a bit of trek from Naperville, but we call it a "great escape" for a reason. If you can spring for baby sitters or opt to leave the kids and grandma and grandpa's, head to Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles where a Mardis Gras Getaway is being offering just for you.

The resort is hosting its own carnival-like celebration each Saturday until March 27. It boasts a brick-lined Bourbon Street and will host parades complete with caricatures and balloon artists.

Craft workshops to make traditional Mardi Gras masks and beads will also be offered. The resort includes a spa, six dining options, a Kids Klub—if you can't find that sitter—and a comedy venue, all starting at $119 per ticket.

To find out about the (many, many more) accommodations, visit the resort's Website.

Take a night and escape the hustle and bustle!
