The city of heritage and charm

Get your fill of culture and southern hospitality in Baton Rouge. The city is deeply rooted in its politics, which can be best understood by visiting the Old Louisiana State Capitol. Enjoy southern cooking by trying the city’s traditional Creole and Cajun dishes. Find your rhythm with the many sounds of Baton Rouge - from Zydeco to Blues music, there is something for everyone. Named as one of top recreational cities in the country, plan a visit to over 184 parks and learn about the wildlife in the surrounding swamp lands. You can also head to Tiger Stadium in your purple and gold to cheer on the Louisiana State Tigers. You might even spot their live mascot, Mike the Tiger.
