Baton Rouge is the capital and the second most populous city of the State of Louisiana, and without a doubt one of the most joyful, whether Mardi Gras time or not, you can feel the festive atmosphere of the place for its lively music, gastronomy and people who always take advantage of every opportunity to enjoy the good times.

To start the day well, we recommend you to enjoy the gastronomy of the place from early in "Strands Cafe", your coffee is delicious, as well as everything in your menu.

You will be able to taste the authentic charm of the Louisiana food at breakfast, and you will also have first class service, as this café is acclaimed for its good cuisine and the friendliness of its staff.

A good place to walk and learn is "Louisiana Art & Science Museum". This museum perfectly combines both appreciations and is a highly recommended place for children: it has several rooms where they have activities where they can play, create, draw, learn, create and have fun; as in the special laboratory, where the youngest can perform experiments and encourage their curiosity.

Another incredible place to spend the day is at the "USS Kidd Veterans Museum", where you will get to know the cover of a fletcher type destroyer of the Second World War, and in the museum you will learn how the life of the sailors developed, the artifacts of war that they used at that time and everything about the history of those times.

As we mentioned earlier, Louisiana is famous for its cuisine, and let us tell you that you are in the right place to try it, since Baton Rouge is the meeting point between Cajun and Creole cuisine, commonly known as country food and the one in Louisiana.

Fortunately, you will not have to decide for just one, as there are plenty of options in your restaurants and you can find both types of cuisines in one menu.

Something we have to emphasize is that the capital of Louisiana celebrates four seasons of seafood: in spring, the most abundant seafood is a crustacean of fresh water; in summer, blue crab dishes will be the most popular; in autumn, we will be able to count on different varieties of shrimp; and in winter, the star dish will be oysters.

This occurs due to the temperature changes of the transitions of stations, which makes an adequate environment for each type of seafood depending on the season.

Visit "Tony's Seafood", a place where every day celebrate the different seasons of seafood, where you should try their delicious crab cakes, stuffed crab, po 'boy sandwiches or shrimp, pudding, Cajun sausage or its different dishes with shrimp.
