Baton Rouge is a little big town. You have unique sites of a “big city” like the capitol building and the old governor’s mansion downtown and then petite cafes and local grocery stores where you run into a friend or co-worker every time you go in for eggs and milk. LSU brings so much life to the fall weekends with football games that take over the town! If you aren’t lucky enough to snag tickets, you can go to any restaurant and feel like you are in Tiger Stadium. You are close enough for a day hop to Lafayette or New Orleans for soul-satisfying Cajun or jazz music and delicious comfort food. Baton Rouge is a sweet spot in Louisiana.
