Things to Do

There are many Baton Rouge things to do for fun and entertainment. It all depends on what you're in the mood for.

Baton Rouge things to do could include a trip to our state capitol building downtown. Recently, me and my son Tyler took a trip to see the Louisiana State Capitol building in downtown Baton Rouge. We had a fine morning on this hot summer day. It had been quite a while since I had been there and Tyler had never been. We took pictures on the steps of the capitol and inside the impressive foyer entrance. We also road the elevator 27 floors the top of the building to the observation deck. We got some great pictures overlooking downtown and the Mississippi River.

A photo on the side to the right shows my son on the observation deck of the capitol. He was squinting because the sun was in his eyes but he thought it was cool to be up so high, 27 floors. This is the largest state capitol in the United States.

Another photo lower down shows him standing in front of the House of Representatives chamber to the right side of the first floor. I tried to explain to him about how laws were made but he said the classic, "I don't get it."

Here's Tyler in front of the first floor Huey Long exhibit. This is the location where Huey was assassinated. Many people have said that Huey could have well been president one day.

Check out my Labels box at the top right of this website for plenty of other places to go and things to do in Baton Rouge. One is a link of another nice trip we took to the Louisiana Old State Capitol Building downtown. It was a wonderful trip and I've got some good pictures on this page. There is also a link to our school field trip to the New Orleans Aquarium. Another link with the October '07 trip close by to the Denham Springs Pumpkin Patch. Another trip is posted to our June '07 trip to the Bluebonnet Swamp and a July '07 trip to the USS Kidd page. Also, I've just added a slide show of the many photos found throughout this site. This page of my site is probably my favorite and I enjoy sharing some ideas of things to do in Baton Rouge.
