Stay away (Shots Fired!! lol)from any area around I-110 unless you are going downtown or to Tonys Seafood (The Hollywood St.Exit)for some great crawfish.There is a beach on LSU lakes.Take Acadian Thruway exit on I-10 go towards LSU (East I-10 right West I-10 left at exit).Blue Bayou waterpark is a little overrated if you ask me.I rather go to 1 of many rivers we got and find a nice beach and chill.Its cheaper and no crowds.One last thing there is a place called Gators tubing just outside of McComb Mississippi.Great place to take the kids for tubing and canoeing down hte homochitto river.Google for phone # (ryals tubing or gators tubing homochitto river)over 4 years ago

i spent 2 months living in a tent in hammond, LA a few years ago while working at the renaissance fair there. i met a lot of kids from BR and fell in love with the place and the people. some of my closest friends are there. it killed me to have to leave and come back home. i’ve been down numerous times in the past few years to visit. one of my favorite things to do is go to the levee and the pier. the first time i went the the pier we had to climb up and over the huge gate, but the chains have since been cut, which makes access much easier, but a bit less fun. so, the plan is to move there permanently, hopefully this spring. i never really gave much thought about moving anywhere until i visited BR. now, it’s more like home to me than home is.over 5 years ago
I lived here for four years…it is building up, but it is mostly a horrendous stretch of suburbia. If you are going, just make sure to get atop the Shaw center and have a martini at Tsunami while the sun sets on the Mississippi. If you pass the casino, drive under the Miss. Bridge, then park your car on the right, there is a really creepy old port you can climb out on and it is great. Don’t go there at night.
I love Baton Rouge and I would totally move back. Those who said LSU is the heart of BRare right; if you don’t like college towns, this is the wrong place for you.
But if you DO like college towns, this is one that will definitely keep you feeling young. I miss BR.over 6 years ago
I lived in Baton Rouge for about 6 and half years, I love this city which is on the Mississippi River full of culture and good Cajun food, I gained like 80 LBS here lol, that can give you a hint that cajun food is the best. it is a small quite town, a college city every body loves LSU including me, college football is a big thing here, if you come in college fotball season you should visit the tiger village for tailgate party. mardi gras stay in town to attend the parades or go to New Orleans, San patrick day parade is a good one in the garden district. Good Restaurants. Chimes, Al-Basha, and Pluckers.over 6 years ago
