The capital city of Louisiana may be overshadowed by New Orleans, but the city is still a tourist stop of its own. Set along the Mississippi River, Baton Rouge is full of historic architecture and charming streets.
Visit the Old Louisiana State Capitol and Museum, or get a taste of the antebellum south at the LSU Rural Life Museum or the Magnolia Mound Plantation. The Louisiana Art and Science Museum and the Baton Rouge Zoo are among the other must-visit spots in the city.
As the home to Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge is full of college vibes, as well as great shows and speakers who come to the university area. Plus, the city is home to the LSU football team. Head to Tiger Stadium to catch a game.
