People who love active nightlife always find themselves at home in Louisiana. Live music by excellent musicians and recording artists pours from clubs, concert halls and casino stages throughout the state. The universal language of Louisiana is music – from jazz, blues, R&B, hip hop and country to Cajun, zydeco, swamp pop and salsa. But dining in great restaurants and cafes also is a way of life here. And with casinos and casino resorts scattered across the state, the range of entertainment Louisiana offers is huge. Night owls will be at home in cities from Shreveport-Bossier City to Lake Charles to Baton Rouge, and all the way to New Orleans, a 24-hour city where the party never stops.
Visit Baton Rouge, Louisiana to experience all the things to do in the capital city. From a hot culinary scene to live music, Baton Rouge offers a unique Louisiana experience.
Politics is deeply entwined in the culture of Baton Rouge; it can be found both in the storied past of local dealmakers, showcased at the Old Louisiana State Capitol, and in the political history that is being written now inside the art deco skyscraper that serves as the current capitol. As home to the main campus of Louisiana State University and several smaller colleges, the city buzzes with the energy of youth while holding fast to its traditions in Southern lifestyle and historic sites. LSU's home football games dominate the fall social calendar when fans perfect the art of tailgating and pack the immense Tiger Stadium. A revival is underway in the city center where attractions range from a riverfront casino to the USS Kidd floating museum to the ultra-contemporary Shaw Center for the Arts, which clusters an art museum, gallery spaces, theaters and restaurants in the heart of downtown.
