Baton Rouge Travel Guide

The capital of Louisiana, Baton Rouge also happens to be the fifth largest port in the US. Earlier it was the hunting grounds of two native tribes who used blood-smeared poles to demarcate their respective areas. Seventeenth century French explorers passing through the area named it Baton Rouge meaning ‘red stick’.

Remember 'Gone with the Wind'? Well, the Mount Hope Plantation in Baton Rouge was used as the set for the legendary Scarlett O'hara's home, Tara.
