American Resorts Association describes Baton Rouge as a southern get-a-way located in South Louisiana and just a short drive from New Orleans.
Baton Rouge is a mid-sized city and offers all the convenience, accommodations and dining possibilities of other cities with the added benefit of attracting some of the most diverse and entertaining events of the South. American Resorts Association knows that if there is something happening in Louisiana, chances are it is happening in Baton Rouge.
The Capital of Louisiana and home to Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge attracts a diverse population of young and old alike, bringing these two groups together resulting in a community of fun for all ages.
Baton Rouge is also a plantation country and gives visitors a glimpse into the life and culture on a plantation. LSU is home to the Rural Life Museum where your adventure starts.
