Discover Baton Rouge
Visit the city’s deep and colourful history with its beautiful antebellum mansions and experience what life was like in the cotton, sugar cane and rice plantations. Capitol Park Museum retraces the history of the state and well worth the visit.
Discover the Capital City’s rich musical heritage. Baton Rouge hosts a wide variety of musical events and performances featuring both local and world-renowned entertainers to keep you dancing year-round. Why not tantalise your taste buds with the authentic Cajun and Creole cuisine from chargrilled alligator and crawfish pie to local catfish and Cajun boudin balls.
Politics is deeply entwined in the culture of Baton Rouge; it can be found both in the storied past of local dealmakers, showcased at the Old Louisiana State Capitol and in the political history that is being written now inside the art deco skyscraper that serves as the current capitol.
