Baton Rouge Area

Historic sites abound in and around the state capital of Baton Rouge. The beautifully restored Old Louisiana State Capitol building is one of the most impressive examples of Gothic architecture in the country. Area museums interpret the history of steam locomotives, African-American art, early village life, the criminal justice system and more. Genteel communities such as St. Francisville and New Roads are known for a gracious living and historic plantations that reflect French Creole influences. Lovely hills around Jackson and Clinton make for scenic drives. Visit plantations, such as the grand dame called Nottoway in White Castle, for an architectural treat. Back in the capital city, visit the campus of Louisiana State University, and enjoy fine dining, live music, a bustling riverfront and casinos.
