Port Allen

Geolocation

Port Allen sits across the Mississippi River from Baton Rouge, but the mighty waterway does more to unite the two neighbors than separate them. As home to the Port of Greater Baton Rouge, the city is the northernmost deepwater terminal on the Mississippi and a busy crossroads with cargo moving from barges and trains to ocean-going vessels. Port Allen's Mississippi Riverfront Development park offers panoramic views of the Capital City's skyline along a pedestrian promenade lined with architectural features and ornamental lighting. The city's important location has fueled its rich industrial and cultural history, which are showcased at the West Baton Rouge Museum complex with its 1830s-era Aillet House and collection of slave cabins. Tour the Railroad Depot Museum with restored caboose and exhibits on 1940s railroad life; come to Sugarfest in October or the Lagniappe Dulcimer Fete Festival, a celebration of handmade musical instruments each March, draws travelers nationwide.
