Gardening in Baton Rouge, LA
Baton Rouge is a city with a rich history, vibrant traditions, and colorful culture. It sits on the eastern bank of the mighty Mississippi River and is the capital of the great state of Louisiana. Like its sister city of New Orleans, Baton Rouge is an exciting place to visit and live.
Science and art are alive and well in Red Stick (translation from French of Baton Rouge). To get a big serving of both in the same place, take a trip to the Louisiana Art and Science Museum. There, you will be treated to exhibits and collections that connect art and science and inspire true learning.
If sports are your thing, then you are in for a treat. Louisiana State University Tiger Stadium, also known as Death Valley, hosts some of the most exciting and action-packed college ball games in the nation. There's also a tiger there named Mike. Yes, the official mascot of LSU Baton Rouge is a tiger, and he lives in his own special habitat that mimics his home in the wild. And yes, you can catch a glimpse of Mike when you visit Tiger Stadium.
Baton Rouge is old and unique. Where most of the rest of the US was born from English influences, Louisiana and her cities came from the French. This can be seen in the language, food, laws, and architecture, among other things.
Speaking of architecture, there are two capital buildings in Baton Rouge. Both of them are striking architectural works. One of them is now a museum. The old state capitol building has gothic characteristics and boasts an impressive stained-glass dome. Exhibits on display recount the enthralling history of Baton Rouge and Louisiana to exploring visitors.
The new capital building is equally impressive architecturally but utterly different in style. It's considered by many to be an art deco masterpiece. Although it is not as old as the other capitol building, the new building has already begun to amass a rich history of its own.
Foodies love Baton Rouge because put simply, it's got some of the best southern and international cooking in the world. Ever hear of gumbo or po'boys? How about crawfish etouffee, king cake, or muffuletta? Well, if you haven't, then it's time to read some food news or head out to one of the many exceptional dining experiences in the city to educate your palate. Let yourself be delighted by all of the different Cajun and Creole influences.
Not many people know that there is a time machine in Baton Rouge. It only has one destination, but it takes you there. It's called the LSU Rural Life Museum and is situated on 40 acres known as the Burden Plantation. The Museum is a research experiment, and its primary goal is to learn more about life in Louisiana in the 18th and 19th centuries. You'll be whisked back in time by the old houses and buildings from pre-industrialized Louisiana.
Let's not forget the Baton Rouge Lakes. University Lake and City Park Lake are perfect places to cool off in the Louisiana heat. With some beach chairs and a cooler, you're ready for a relaxing day. If you feel like being a little more active at the lake, then you have the option of renting a kayak.
Highland Road Park is an active person's dream. It sits on 144 acres and has outdoor and indoor spaces galore. There's a recreation center with an indoor gymnasium that is fully air-conditioned and offers a variety of sports activities. The park even has a splash pad as well as a pavilion.
When you feel like getting wild, head over to the Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center, its mission is to connect people through nature. There you will see the real wildlife of Baton Rouge and Louisiana. Live animal exhibits and ecosystems treat visitors as they wander through the paths and down the boardwalk. Touch-tables are set out with bones, snakeskins, and feathers so visitors can become more familiar with animals that live around them.
The mighty Mississippi is a great place to stroll. The Mississippi River Levee Path leads to downtown. Along the trail, there are attractions of note to spy and places to eat.
Yes, life on the Mississippi is quite a unique thing. It inspires the residents to have beautiful properties with well-kempt lawns and gardens. That being said, not everyone has a green thumb, and of those that do, not all have the time to keep their gardens alive and thriving.
