Louisiana’s Capital City highlights the unique history, music, culture and outdoors that both visitors to Louisiana and locals alike enjoy. With French, Spanish, Creole and Native American roots, the city is rich in its culture and politics. Nicknamed the “Red Stick,” Baton Rouge houses over 300 years of history, much of which can be tasted in the food, seen in the architecture and learned through the state’s history.
Baton Rouge, the Louisiana state capital, owes its name to two Indian tribes who marked the boundaries of their territory with red posts.
