The big annual draw for visitors to New Orleans is the season from February through May when the city’s most famous events (Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, and more) turn the Big Easy into party central. While the ... Read more
weather is usually pretty tolerable during this season, you will need to book early -- up to a year in advance -- to ensure you get a hotel reservation. Summer can be stiflingly hot, but autumn sees temperatures drop back down into the 80s (below 32C) and there are plenty of cultural activities to keep you busy, making this an ideal off-peak time to visit. Just be sure to check the weather for any trip between June and November, as there is always potential for a hurricane.

This is the capital of Louisiana and is a very nice and popular place for visiting on the Mississippi River. The downtown area is quiet as most of the shopping as moved to the suburbs. Some nice parks and unique architecture.

Passed by Baton Rouge after visiting New Orleans for 4 hours. I think we spent most of the time at the mall, having dinner.

Baton Rouge is a great place to visit. They are uber supportive of LSU. You see tiger stuff everywhere. The bars etc are decent. Restaurants are great. 10% sales tax really sucks but there are great things to do here!

Went here a bunch of times for work and when I dated a girl who lived here. Kind of fun. I wouldn't recommend stays longer than a week.

A beautiful city. Can't say how much I am liking all the sights. Endless options for shops and food. There is a lot more to do here that you may think. Do your research and you will easily find you can plan a fun weekend with the family.
