BATON ROUGE
Louisiana, U.S.A.
AUTHENTIC LOUISIANA
Welcome to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Baton Rouge is the capital of Louisiana and the second-largest city in the sate with around 230,000 residents. The vibrant city is beautifully situated on the eastern bank of the Mississippi River, and functions as the political hub for Louisiana. Baton Rouge is also a major industrial, medical, research, technology and motion picture center of the American South, and the Port of Baton Rouge is the 9th largest in the country. Baton Rouge was incorporated in 1817, and its name means Red Stick in French. Historically, Baton Rouge is a culturally diverse city built by immigrants from various countries. The city grew out of a French colony that was established in 1719. As a European settlement, Baton Rouge was governed by France, Britain and Spain. Today, the city is home to various cultures, including many Hispanic and Vietnamese residents. Thanks to its diversity, Baton Rouge has become a distinctly colorful city representing a wide array of different heritages. Because it has a mix of all the cultures found throughout Louisiana, the city motto is: Authentic Louisiana at every turn. One of the greatest things about Baton Rouge is its vivacious visual arts scene, which is focused in the downtown area. There are an impressive amount of venues to visit, including the Shaw Center for the Arts, the LSU Museum of Art and the Manship Theatre. Besides prominent venues like those mentioned, Baton Rouge also offers a large local art scene with smaller galleries scattered throughout the city. The Mid-City Cultural District and the Perkins Roads Arts District feature a ton of arts venues, and these areas even offer tax incentives to promote further cultural activity. In addition, the city features a burgeoning performing arts scene, with establishments like the Baton Rouge River Center, a theatre with approximately 1,900 seats. Music lovers can check out the terrific Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra, an excellent ensemble that has been performing since 1947. Lastly, Baton Rouge is famous for its many events, and every year the city hosts the Mardi Gras parades; the largest one being held in the historic Spanish Town. Check out the bi-annual Restaurant Week to discover all the southern flavors that Louisiana has to offer, when vendors from all over the city gather to provide residents with some of the best food in the world.
