Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge, the capital of Louisiana, is situated on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River. The city is steeped in history, with numerous antebellum landmarks such as the striking Old Louisiana State Capitol, which resembles a castle and now serves as a museum. Another notable attraction is the Magnolia Mound Plantation, which features a charming French Creole house and offers a glimpse into life in the 18th and 19th centuries. For those interested in history, the LSU Rural Life Museum is a must-visit, with a collection of refurbished buildings that showcase rural life during that era. Meanwhile, the USS Kidd, a retired WWII destroyer, offers a fascinating glimpse into the nation's military history and is now a museum. With its rich history and cultural offerings, Baton Rouge is a destination that should not be missed.
