One thing we love about Baton Rouge is how much pride the city has in its history. The food, the music, and the people are all a reflection of the rich cultures that make this city so special.

Why go?

  • The rich Creole and Cajun cultures here make for an unforgettable food experience. We suggest booking a food tour for any fellow foodies.
