When the chance of rain is greater than never in Baton Rouge, look for some indoor fun around the capital area for the answer to your rainy-day blues.

Need some indoor fun for the kids?

Try-out an indoor trampoline park. Area 51 takes the cake on indoor fun, with more than 60 trampolines, an obstacle course, extreme dodgeball, a trapeze and so much more, Area 51 will make your rainy day a little more HOPPY. If jumping isn’t your child’s favorite activity, head to Uptown Climbing to climb some indoor rock walls, Laser Tag of Baton Rouge for a game or two, or Quarters for bowling, an arcade and more.

For those wanting to stimulate your kid’s brains on a rainy day, head to the East Baton Rouge Library and see what kind of programming they have going on or explore one of the many museums Baton Rouge offers. Louisiana’s Old State Capital and the Capitol Park Museum both give a different look on Baton Rouge and Louisiana’s history. The new Knock Knock Children’s Museum offers different learning zones to get your kid’s brain moving but also creates fun for them!

Looking for some activities to do with friends?

Lauberge Drinks

Head to an escape room and put your skills to the test. The 13th Gate Escape gives you the option of six different themed rooms for you and your team to try and escape. Maybe the escape room isn’t what you want to do, try a painting class at Painting with a Twist or head to one of Baton Rouge’s casinos and try your luck.

If you want a day to yourself, head to Regal Nails downtown and treat yourself to a spa day. They offer all kinds of services, from mani/pedis to even services for men, too! Rainy days are the perfect days to relax.

Want something the whole family will enjoy?

Government Taco

For lunch, bring your gang to the new White Star Market, a gourmet food court that showcases nine unique food and drink offerings crafted by some of the region’s best talent. Head over to Circle Bowl and put your bowling skills to the test or go see the newest movie accompanied with dinner at The Movie Tavern.


Whether jumping on a trampoline, trying to escape a room, treating yourself or learning some more about Louisiana’s history there is plenty to do on a rainy day in the capital city.
