Greater River Road

The Greater River Road Area sits outside of Baton Rouge in Plantation Country. The area showcases the history of River Road’s once highly influential landowners on a winding path that leads to the state’s political seat. Add to that the capital city’s downtown with award-winning restaurants and a thriving Arts and Entertainment District and you’ve discovered the area’s vibrant personality. The art of cooking was perfected inside plantation kitchens, where mansion restaurants today serve mouthwatering seafood paired with glorious sides such as Creole tomato risotto. From music festivals to antebellum plantations like Oak Alley, the Greater River Road offers a glimpse into this unique area of Louisiana.
