Culture and Traveler's Guide

Baton Rouge, Louisiana's state capital, is where visitors can hear the state's colorful history told and retold. In Baton Rouge, you can see for miles along the Mississippi River from the top of the Capitol, travel back in time at Magnolia Mound or Rural Life Museum, relive WWII Navy life aboard the U.S.S. Kidd and Nautical History Center and tour a mysterious swamp. At the old State Capitol, see the gun some say was used to shoot Huey Long. Stroll along the riverfront, enjoy our riverboat casinos and taste fine Cajun, Creole and Old South cuisine. In Plantation Country, Baton Rouge is the center for seeing more than 20 elegantly restored antebellum homes, as well as experiencing New Orleans and Cajun Country just a short drive away! From Alligators to Zydeco, experience the Flavours of Louisiana in Baton Rouge! For more information, contact: Baton Rouge Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. Credit: Louisiana Office of Tourism.
