Welcome To Louisiana's Capital City

Baton Rouge is Louisiana’s “Capital City” and the hub of all things Louisiana. With a prime, central location—just an hour away from New Orleans and Lafayette—Baton Rouge is the perfect city to explore the eclectic culture of this amazing state. Nicknamed the “Red Stick,” Baton Rouge houses over 300 years of history, much of which can be tasted in our delectable food, seen in our distinct architecture and learned through our unique culture.
