In Baton Rouge, there’s no shortage of ways to experience culinary bliss. In fact, the Capital City was named one of the South’s Best Foodie Cities in 2013 and 2014. During your visit, consider one of our great local tours. For foodies, the “C’est Si Bon” guided walking tour mixes food tastings at downtown restaurants with historical and cultural details. Follow the “Capital Cravings: Hands On!” trail for everything from culinary activities to the Food Truck “Wround-up,” or swing by Tin Roof Brewing Company, part of the Louisiana Craft Beer Trail, which includes ten other craft breweries.
You are guaranteed an unforgettable shopping experience in Baton Rouge, whatever your style. Great shopping starts at the Mall of Louisiana, an impressive 1.6 million-square-foot enclosed mall with 175 retail stores, or Perkins Rowe for a unique residential and shopping village. For a relaxed and charming open-air marketplace, visit Towne Center at Cedar Lodge. Antique lovers can
enjoy a mix of new and old treasures with antiques, original art, and architectural salvage from around the world at Baton Rouge’s many antique hot spots, and international guests can enjoy all of this while shopping tax-free in Louisiana!

Park, Summer Beat, Rock’n Rowe and plenty more.
