Looking for a safe place to explore with babies

by noidiotsplease

We will be spending the night in Baton Rouge this June on the way back home from a trip out west. We will be traveling with two infants and are looking for a hotel located within a really short distance of a nice walking district, mall or other safe place where we can explore with the babies but without having to venture far. The two areas that first come to mind are downtown and the campus of LSU, however, I have no idea how safe and accessible these places would be for a young couple with a stroller. Is downtown safe? Is it a scary ghost town? What about LSU? Is there a mall that might provide a better option? We appreciate any advice you may have. Thank you.

I live just outside Baton Rouge and work in Baton Rouge. Downtown is in a growing spurt right now and is under a lot of construction. To take a stroller down there would be ok if you park in the Centroplex parking lot (or Riverside Center I think it's new name is now) and walk along the Mississippi on the brick walk or downtown past many of the historic sites.

You can think about staying right next to the Mall of Louisiana which is on Bluebonnet Drive. There are several hotels right there--I'll try to locate one for you and will put the link here.

I'm not sure if the link works but if it doesn't, go to the Sheraton Hotels homepage and do a search for Sheraton in Baton Rouge. There is only one and it's in a great location for walking through the downtown-Mississippi River area. Hopefully it won't be out of budget for you--but there are others. It's just that this is the nicest and most convenient.

LSU has a beautiful campus, with lots of live oak trees for shade... BUT I don't know that I would choose to do that in June unless it the humidity was unseasonably low, (which, unfortunately, it rarely is in June). If the humidity is high then the shade doesn't offer much respite from the heat. Obviously, you'd need to make the decision the day before or so after checking the latest weather forecast. Hope this helps.

Travel Tips for Baton Rouge

Easy Driving

by ABL1958

Drive around! It's relatively easy to negotiate the roads in this city as it's not overwhelmingly big. There is a lot to see by car or by foot. One place that is really fun to go to is the Mall of Louisiana. I'll include a picture here and there'll be more in my travelogue. I'm not generally a mall person but I did enjoy this one. Paul, of course. :)

evergreen plantation is located between baton rouge and new orleans on state road 18 near wallace LA.

One of the two best coffeehouses in town!

by IronLenz about Highland Coffee

Adjacent to LSU. This place has been around for a long time and is great all around. Good coffee, good atmosphere, good people. A great place to set up your laptop, read, or maybe even get involved in a conversation (in BR? who would have thought?) Iced Mocha with dark esspresso and whole milk.

An Impressive Campus---LSU

by ABL1958

We took a walk around the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. It's a beautiful campus that is the academic home to over 40,000 students. We were there on a Sunday so it was like walking through a relatively peaceful park.....very little going on. I'll include a picture here and then more in my travelogue.

louisiana arts & science museum

by doug48

the louisiana arts & science museum is located in the historic 1925 illinois central train station building. the museum has art collections and a planetarium. a good place to take children on a visit to baton rouge.
