One thing we love about Baton Rouge is how much pride the city has in its history. The food, the music, and the people are all a reflection of the rich cultures that make this city so special.
  • Why go? The rich Creole and Cajun cultures here make for an unforgettable food experience. We suggest booking a food tour for any fellow food nerds.
  • Outdoors: Baton Rouge Zoo. Newly-renovated and just 15 minutes from the heart of downtown, this is a great family-friendly excursion.
  • Vrbo: Going with a group? This charming stay offers four bedrooms + a full kitchen. (~$285/night)*
Bonus message from our partner: If you’re looking to book this trip, Going offers all the affordable flight hacks from your home airport. Sign up here.*
The Buy
  • Turn misplaced keys into a thing of the past with the Apple AirTag. The button-sized tracking device can give you step-by-step directions to your lost keys (or phone…or wallet…) and has a battery life of one year. Pro tip: Put one in your checked luggage and never worry about lost baggage again.*
