Baton Rouge Photo of the Day


byrde

Recommended Posts

I was passing through town today and did eat lunch here and  visited the top of the State Capitol.  This time I must have gone in the main entrance as I saw the grand foyer and 2 chambers which someone I missed on my last visit.  (think I went in the back entrance last time and went straight up the elevator and never saw the grand foyer) Anyway you have a great Capitol obviously the tallest in the country and it is a classic 1930s building.   Some shots of Capitol Grounds (which are beautiful) and some from inside and some from up top.  Very friendly staff there too.   Great clear day you could see for miles and miles.    warning lots of photos but hey I am tourist.  Ate lunch at Acme Oyster which I have eaten at in New Orleans and knew it was good and it was.

Thanks for posting all of the pics  KJHburg. Sure would like to borrow or take one of your city's (Charlotte) modern high - rises in stick it in downtown BR ...  scanning thru Google EARTH 3D those new towers are impressive! Impressed to see a new 4th Tallest was built in 2019.....and  the Duke Energy Center 786'ft  (2010) was a nice complimentary skyscraper to the 871'ft Bank of America Corp.Center / Wedding Cake Top Tower

Nothing like an October Sunset on Football Friday Night!
