We are so excited to welcome you to Louisiana's Capital City and there's no better time to visit then as we celebrate 200 years of incorporation in 2017. As you're gearing up for your trip to Baton Rouge, we wanted to provide you with some information you may find helpful for your stay.

Before You Depart

Pack for warmer weather: daily highs, even in the Fall, are well above what most are used to. We encourage sunscreen and the checking of weather in case of a pop-up shower nearby.


Baton Rouge is Ready to Welcome You!

When you get here, if flying in, be sure to stop by the Visit Baton Rouge welcome center in the baggage claim area. Our friendly volunteers will be happy to help you navigate your way around the Red Stick.

Or, visit one of our various visitor information centers around town. You'll find information desks and volunteers at the Baton Rouge Regional Airport, downtown at the Visit Baton Rouge office, in the Baton Rouge River Center, and in the State Capitol building.
