Destination guide

Take a riverfront vacation in lively Baton Rouge

Visitors flock to Baton Rouge for its Antebellum historic sites, family-friendly attractions, varied shopping and dining options and picturesque locale on the Mississippi River. The southern city is the capital of Louisiana and home to countless students, so there's always plenty of activity around town, whether its exciting ball games, lively festivals, toe-tapping nightlife or tasty food tours. Once you've picked out your ideal Baton Rouge vacation rental, you'll find that a wide range of attractions await, from waterfront parks on the banks of the Mississippi River to shopping districts, art galleries, golf courses and museums.

Things to do

Soaking up the history of Baton Rouge

Several of Baton's Rouge's cultural and historic sites are located along River Road on the Mississippi. Just a few blocks from the Louisiana State Capitol building, the tallest one in the U.S., the Old State Capitol Museum is housed in a 165-year-old Gothic-style building that's listed as a National Historic Landmark. Inside, you'll discover a stained-glass dome and exhibits dedicated to political history. Nearby, there's an art and science museum, with hands-on exhibits for kids, and the USS Kidd Museum, a veteran's memorial and museum on a WWII destroyer that you can enter to tour the decks and inside areas.


Touring the streets and waterways of Baton Rouge

With so much to see and do in Louisiana's capital, taking a guided tour is a great way to tick off the main attractions near your Baton Rouge vacation rental. Several options are available, from sightseeing bus tours around the city that highlight Civil War landmarks and trips to nearby plantations, to adventurous airboat rides along the surrounding swamps and bayous in search of alligators and birds to photograph. You might also want to consider a food tour to try out some of the restaurants here. Downtown walking excursions include samples of local favorites like gumbo and beignets.


Baton Rouge in every season

Spring and fall are the best times to visit Baton Rouge, as the city sees pleasant daytime temperatures that average in the 70s and 80s and are ideal for outdoor activities and boat tours on the river. Fall also means football season and accommodation fills up quickly with fans and alumni, so book your Baton Rouge vacation rental early if you plan to visit during this time. Even in winter, the lows barely breach freezing point here, so you can leave your heavy coats behind. Summers, on the other hand, can be hot and steamy, perfect for indoor attractions like museums and shopping malls.

Natural features

Out into the swamps near Baton Rouge

The Mississippi River runs right through Baton Rouge and Louisiana's swamps aren't far. There are plenty of places to get back to nature near the capital city, including a beautiful botanical garden on the campus of Louisiana State University in town. A little further out into the wild, the Atchafalaya National Wildlife Refuge has 15,000 acres of hardwood swamps and bayous to explore on paddling trails shaded by moss-filled oak trees. You're sure to encounter some local wildlife here, and on the hiking and biking trails, so keep your eyes open for egrets, white-tailed deer and the beady eyes of lurking alligators.
