Sights you mustn't miss

The campus of Lousiana State University is one of the major city landmarks for its century-old buildings, lush green lawns surrounded by ancient oaks, Indian Mounds and lakes. The imposing Old State Capitol was built in the 19th century and is now a fascinating museum, and the present State Capitol is an Art Deco-style high-rise dating from the 1930s.
LSU’s Rural Life Museum and the Baton Rouge Zoo are great for family visits, and the African American Museum traces the infamous slave culture of the south.

Fun things to do

Getting to grips with this iconic region involves one essential activity – an alligator bayou swamp tour. The city’s history revolves around its relationship with its bayous, swamplands and the magnificent river, and is best appreciated by boat.
Local culture can be seen as the two Saturday morning markets, the Red Stick Farmers’ Market and the Main Street Market, and families will enjoy visiting USS Kidd, a WWII Navy destroyer moored on the downtown river bank.
The city’s nightlife is mostly found in bars and pubs, with the Tigerland complex near LSU a hub for students.

Wining and dining

Soul food is a Baton Rouge favourite, with Zeeland Street Market in Garden District the best place to experience this iconic southern cuisine.
Downtown has the usual selection of international and ethnic eateries as well as restaurants specialising in Louisiana’s unique Cajun cuisine. Jambalaya, gumbo, spicy Creole dishes, meat-heavy grills and seafood specialities are all here, and the upscale hotels offer French, Italian, Japanese and other Asian delights.

Day trips

Louisiana is plantation land, and many of the great old Plantation mansions with their slave quarters can be seen along the New Orleans road.
Historic St Tammany Parish boasts a working alligator farm set along the shores of Lake Pontchartrain and surrounded by rolling hills and pine forests.
One and a half hours away is New Orleans with its French Quarter, jazz venues and Voodoo Museum.
