The Louisiana State Capitol building dominates the landscape of downtown Baton Rouge, a gargantuan tower built in classic 1930s art deco style. Right next door, the historic Spanish Town neighborhood is a popular community for artists and bohemian types, with the beautifully preserved homes and tree-shaded streets giving the impression of a charming small town.

While Baton Rouge is home to several colleges, Louisiana State University is essentially the cultural hub of the city, and Tiger football is the undisputed center of attention throughout the fall—the tailgating and raucous home games at Tiger Stadium (aka “Death Valley” or “Deaf Valley,” depending on who you ask) are the stuff of legend, and simply must be experienced to be believed.

The area surrounding the LSU campus is loaded with nightlife and entertainment options catering to the student body, especially along Highland Road. Most of the activity in town is clustered together near the river, and the areas further east tend to get considerably more subdued and slower-paced, providing tranquil home environments for folks who appreciate their peace and quiet.

Good food is one thing that's very easy to come by in Baton Rouge. From the popular fast-food chicken fingers and secret sauce at Raisin' Canes to high-end dining at bistros and cafes downtown, there's plenty to eat here. Palates are heavily influenced by Cajun flavors and spices. Taco Boudreax combines Mexican and Louisiana favorites to create carne asada po' boys and alligator "taceauxs." Also make sure to try the chargrilled oysters at Acme Oyster House and the white chocolate bread pudding next door at Parrain's Seafood. Craving sushi? Tsunami, located downtown, is the place to go.
