A Brief Overview of Baton Rouge
Baton Rouge got its name back in 1699, when a French explorer by the name of Sieur d’Iberville came upon a red cypress pole that marked a boundary between two Native American tribes. There are still plenty of historic Native American sites in the area–good news for all you history buffs out there–though the original red stick is long gone. If you're into historic architecture, you'll also want to visit the Neo-Gothic castle that once served as Baton Rouge’s Capitol building. Nowadays, Baton Rouge is a major city that is one of the centers of industrial, medical, research, and petrochemical industries for the South. It is also home to the ninth largest port in the country.
But Wait, There’s More Marvelous Architecture!
As soon as you settle in to your new apartment, be sure to head out to explore the city, especially if you enjoy historic architecture. Start by visiting the Magnolia Mount Plantation House, the Myrtles Plantation, and the Nottoway Plantation, which feature antebellum architecture. Louisiana State University, is a great example of Italian Renaissance-style architecture, though there's a touch of modernity in the stadium, which is one of the largest around. For a little something more contemporary, the Louisiana State Museum is a great place to visit–and not just for the exhibits! There’s plenty more to experience in and around Baton Rouge, including the Baton Rouge River Center, Louisiana State Library, Louisiana Naval Museum, and Louisiana Art and Science Museum. You’ll never grow tired of the rich history or the sights to see!
No, we, didn't just sneeze, but thank you anyway. If you're a fan of the great outdoors, be sure to get yourself to Atchafalaya National Wildlife Refuge, just to the west of Baton Rouge. This is a hardwood swamp, so named because of the abundance of hardwood trees, especially ash. Whether you enjoy hiking, boating, fishing, hunting, or bird watching, this is a great park to visit. It's even possible to see alligators in the swamp, though we do not recommend that you jump wrestle them in an ill-guided attempt to become "more local."
Marvel at Mardi Gras
What would Louisiana be without Mardi Gras? New Orleans may be more famous when it comes to this celebration, but Baton Rouge gives it a run for its money by putting on a series of spectacular parades. The parade in Spanish Town is the biggest and is not to be missed! You don't have to wait until Fat Tuesday to have a great time in this city, though. You can also check out some of the other festivals including, FestforAll, Louisiana Earth Day, the Pennington Balloon Festival, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and the Red Stick International Animation Festival. Rent an apartment in Baton Rouge today so you don't miss out on one more day of fun!
