Baton Rouge Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

This past weekend I visited family in Baton Rouge. During the trip we visited downtown and I took my camera with me. Here is what I saw:

The open green market downtown:

This is the museum of art downtown. The pictures below it are from the top of this building:

Great pictures, Neo! :thumbsup: I really like the shots from the top of the Shaw Center, and especially the shot overlooking the river.

So what did you think of Louisiana's booming capital city? :)

Thanks for those pics Neo ! How did you like BR ? I liked all the pics, especially seeing the progress on the Old State Capitol renovation ! And Tiger Stadium in the background too .

The Manship Theatre inside the Shaw Arts Center is really nice ! I had to ask myself if this was really Baton Rouge ? And the top where you took those pics is the coolest nightime hang-out overlooking the river.

It looks like One American Place(BR's 2nd tallest) was blocking a partial view of the State Capital ?

I'll be honest and say that it is probably not my favorite place but that doesn't mean I didn't like it. I don't think I would choose to live there but it is nice to visit from time to time. I had a good breakfast at a place next to the market and I do like that they have a public place where you can go and get a view of the city and the river. I honestly expected to see more people out and about considering what's been on the news about BR, but I was pleasantly suprised overall at how nice the place was. It was truly better than I expected. Same for NO.

I'm glad to hear you liked the city. I agree that it's not the best city around, but I always enjoy myself there and I've always liked the place. :)
