Hello, I will be visiting Baton Rouge for 3weeks as I will be completing a teaching placement at a school there. I am a 28year old, British female who will be travelling alone and would appreciate some advice in key areas to visit, restaurants near LSU, areas to avoid and any general advice. I am also looking to visit New Orleans and was wondering if I should do it in 1 day and take the swift bus or if I should book a hotel to spend a weekend there? Suggestions and advice is warmly welcomed! Thanks
Hello, I am wondering how I can get from Baton Rouge to New Orleans? By bus? How long does it take to go there and is it very expensive? Thanks a lot!
Recently visited New Orleans and hated the drive from the airport, loops and water everywhere, is the drive from the airport in Baton Rogue to the mall area pretty much a straight shot or is it similiar to New Orleans.
I would be moving recently to Baton Rouge. The company I would be working for is located near Sherwood forest Blvd. any suggestions for the nearby areas in which good accomodation is avaliable?
Does anyone have a good recommendation of an activity in Baton Rouge during a rainy day? Advice would be much appreciated :]!

Is there any Shuttle or any other ground transportation from New Orleans to Baton Rouge?
How can I get to Baton Rouge after arriving at New Orleans International? I'd like to spend a few days in the city in October, hopefully attending a LSU game. I'd rather not rent a car unless it's unfeasable. Thanks.

I am planning to visit the Baton Rouge area and I would like to go to the beach while I am in Louisiana. I am having a hard time locating information online about which cities have ocean beaches so I can figure out which are closest to Baton Rouge. My questions: 1. What are the cities in LA that have ocean beaches on the gulf coast? 2. What ocean beaches are closest to Baton Rouge? Thanks to anyone who can help me :) Megypt
We will be spending the night in Baton Rouge this June on the way back home from a trip out west. We will be traveling with two infants and are looking for a hotel located within a really short distance of a nice walking district, mall or other safe place where we can explore with the babies but without having to venture far. The two areas that first come to mind are downtown and the campus of LSU, however, I have no idea how safe and accessible these places would be for a young couple with a stroller. Is downtown safe? Is it a scary ghost town? What about LSU? Is there a mall that might provide a better option? We appreciate any advice you may have. Thank you.
Hi. I'll be in Baton Rouge for a little over a day for a bowling tournament at the end of March and I wanted to know what you all think is a must see/do? I won't have much more than 5-6 hours to sightsee, so it's gotta be special. Also, I'm looking for a decent priced hotel. I found the Baton Rouge Days Inn West for a really good price...is that a decent hotel? Suggestions? Thanks. ~Summer

Greetings from Massachsetts, We are going to take a long weekend in December, the 20th thru the 23rd to visit the Baton Rouge / New Orleans Area ... What is the weather like during that time period in that area ? Is there anything special going on for the Christmas season in that area ? Any suggestions for a good B&B in the New Orleans area ? We will be renting a car, so getting around will be no problem ... Any help appreciated ... :o) Mary and Al - Massachusetts
My son is a recent College Graduate who ( having always loved the South) is going to spend a year working in Baton Rouge. He will need an apartment from July 2003-June 2004. We have located several on line Listings, but having never been to your city, do not know what the areas are like. He thought perhaps in the LSU area? He likes to run daily and we live in rural Pennsylvania, so I know the city will be different for him. Can you recommend areas that are safe? Of course, he will be on a limited income and needs reasonably priced housing. Perhaps you could point us to someone that might be able to help?
