The mini downtown area with all the government buildings is really well done, and towering above them all is the State Capital. Walking onto the property the hedge design is lovely. As you get closer to the building itself, minute details start to pop out. Carvings in the stone are truly picture worthy...as is the impressive building itself (tallest State Capital in the country at 450 feet). Upon entering there are some cases with artifacts. Relatively bland and government building-esque.

Beautiful old historic plantation home. Short distance from the Mississippi River. My first sightseeing tour of Baton Rouge. I was told that this was a must see. We got there in time for the last tour of the day. Tour guide was very knowledgeable of the early days of the plantation, and it's restoration. Home was decorated with Items. We also got to tour the outside kitchen, since it most days it was too hot to have the kitchen inside, Lot of neat stuff.

Baton Rouge's very own castle in the heart of downtown is as beautiful as it is special. I'd definitely recommend everyone to come in and tour the old state capital at least once. The stained glass windows and the stained glass rotunda ceiling is breathtaking. The spiral stairs are beyond beautiful. The ghost story is so much fun to sit through because it's informative, and entertaining. I learned a lot about the history of Baton Rouge and the old and new state capital.
