BATON ROUGE, La. (April 26, 2022) -- For sporting events in Baton Rouge, LSU fans and opposing fans alike flock to LSU's campus to watch their favorite teams in action. For the opposing fans that have been here before, they know that Baton Rouge is one of the most unique cities to visit. For the fans who have yet to visit, they will have to experience for themselves how the pleasant weather, festivals and of course, food make for an incredible weekend in the Red Stick.

With pleasant weather for most of the year, Baton Rouge is the perfect place to experience the great outdoors . Looking to get your steps in? Stay close to campus by walking the four - mile trail around the LSU Lakes , and if you're feeling more adventurous, hike the many trails right outside the city limits. If biking is more your thing, then you've come to the right place - many bicycle tours (even a party bike for up to 16 people) provide tours that take you past all the city's notable landmarks , such as the Old State Capitol and the USS KIDD . For those who would much rather eat than exercise, outdoor dining is a must. If you time your trip just right , you may be able to sample some fresh Louisiana crawfish , oysters or king cakes , which everyone knows is hard to beat!

Not only is Baton Rouge the perfect place to explore the outdoors, but festival season kicks off in the spring and lasts well into the summer. Celebrating our culture and way of life is always in season, and we proudly showcase our heritage through the many music , food and holiday festivals. Dance the weekend away at the Baton Rouge Blues Festival , peruse the many local makers' pieces at Ebb & Flow Festival or indulge in some classic Louisiana fare at Baton Rouge Soul Food Festival . Whatever the occasion, there's sure to be a celebration happening somewhere in the city.

Whether you 're visiting for a mid - week game or heading to Baton Rouge for the weekend, the possibilities are endless when it comes to things to do. With live music at multiple venues a night, restaurant options for everyone's tastebuds and festivals many weekend s throughout the year , your trip to Baton Rouge will be nothing short of a good time. We look forward to welcoming you to the Red Stick!
