#BatonRouge lies along the banks of the legendary Mississippi River in southeast #Louisiana. It is the state’s capital and is famous for its sports-mad universities, cultural fusion and of course, laid-back southern charm.
From the days when a red stick (or Baton Rouge) marked the boundary between native tribes, to its subsequent administration by France, Britain and Spain, transformation has been built into the DNA of this city. In 1846, a stroke of the pen made it the Louisiana State Capital and since then, it has continued to grow as a city, and a vacation destination.
Mark Twain is often quoted as saying,
“Throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
And there is no better way to the catch the trade winds in your sails than with a #vacation to Baton Rouge.
We hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.
