Adventures in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Baton Rouge has a lot of history and personally was creepier than going to New Orleans.  It was such a breathtaking location to experience the real Louisiana.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved spending time in New Orleans (NOLA), however, NOLA can be more for the drinking and partying aspect.  Baton Rouge has a lot to offer and see with swamps, great food, home cooking, beautiful plantations, old homes and so much more.   Enjoy the pictures!

Let’s just say that the state of Louisiana is very proud of their university.  Go Tigers!  They take pride in their school and their team.  Many alumni will still continue tosee a LSU game whenever they can.

There are so many different types of birds and creatures here.  Unfortunately, the milk thistle was making me sneeze like crazy.  We found one gator while out there.

This was probably the one of the most interesting things I saw in Louisiana.  However, it is illegal to drink these in the car while it is moving, but it’s weird because it’s technically an open container.  Not sure what to say about that, but they were freaking delicious! Hands down the best Bloody Mary I ever tried hands down and definitely refreshing.
