School is out, and summer is here in the Capital City! If you’re looking for some kid-approved activities to add to your itinerary, Baton Rouge has you covered. There are so many opportunities for exploration, learning, entertainment and, most importantly, fun! Every summer has its own story—Explore Baton Rouge and create your own.



Even though there is no school, there are still plenty of opportunities to learn something new. These museums, summer reading programs, and classes will keep young minds active and entertained.



Make time to enjoy the warm weather and spend the day visiting a water park, renting kayaks or going fishing in the Capital City.
