Travel Tips for Baton Rouge

LSU Lakes

by WFTR

The LSU Lake is a small lake built on the LSU campus serving as a scenic/recreational amenity for the campus. It is bound by a road at each end, by homes on one side, and by fraternity row on the other side. There is a small beach at one end with some picnic tables and a reasonably clean restroom. When I visited, I parked at this end and launched my kayak onto the lake. Many people walk, job, or bike around the lake, and there are paths for these activities. A penninsula that juts into the lake at one end is designated as a wildlife refuge.

As a place to kayak, the lake wasn't all that exciting. It would be a good place to go for exercise, but the scenery doesn't change enough to make it a great kayaking destination. The little wildlife refuge has some birds, but I didn't see much of interest. The lake is full of turtles, and they are fun to see occasionally.

No swimming is allowed, so the beach is good only as a place to sit in the sand and catch some sun. Anyone interested in this activity might enjoy the beach, and I saw several people doing just that. However, I wouldn't make it a major focus of travel activity.

I've heard mixed reviews on jogging around the lake. A local lawyer and politician spoke where I work about a year ago and said that the place is dangerous to women. She had jogged around the lake in the past but refused to do so anymore. On the other hand, the community is sensitive to attacks on women right now, and I rarely hear of anything happening there. If it were really prevalent, I think I would hear more.

Locals can find the lake many ways, but I found it easiest by taking the Acadian exit from I-10 and heading west (under the interstate). That road might change names, but it took me directly to the lake.

Soul Food

by gt6303c about Silver Moon Cafe

Silver Moon's is my favorite restaurant in Baton Rouge. It's on Chimes Street close to campus. The food is so good, I get hungry just writing about it. Try the smothered chicken with white beans and rice. Come hungry, because the meals are quite large. The tea is also very good. The place might not look that nice, but the food is amazing.

Red Stick Farmer's Market

by cynthi

Open every Saturday from 8 to noon, the Farmer's Market is a neat thing to do on the weekend. Along with the fresh produce & dairy products, they have cooking demonstrations and live performances. The first two times I went I didn't realize that they had a huge inside area that was part of the market, so don't be shy about peaking in windows.

Along with the farmer's market, there is an Arts market on the first Saturday of the month (webpage is for the Art's Market).

USS Kidd

by keeweechic

The USS Kidd is a restored WWII Fletcher class destroyer and a national historic landmark. She was awarded 12 battle stars in the Pacific during WWII and the Korean conflict. It is berthed on the Mississippi River in a unique cradle that supports it when the river is low but allows it to float when the river rises. The submarine is part of the Nautical Museum.

The Old Mississippi Bridge

by keeweechic

The old Mississippi bridge was built north of the city in the 1930’s by the Governor at the time, Huey Long. They say that the bridge was built low over the Mississippi so that the ocean-going vessels couldn't proceed any further upriver.
