Great Escapes

One thing we love about Baton Rouge is how much pride the city has in its history. The food, the music, and the people are all a reflection of the rich cultures that make this city so special.
  • Food: Bayou Cafe. The BBQ chicken at this family-owned restaurant is a must-try.
  • Drink: Bengal Tap Room. Great for beer lovers, you can’t go wrong with any of their tap options.
  • Listen: If you like live music, you’ll love Mid City Ballroom. This renovated church now hosts live music performances and the world’s only Komet Amp showroom.
  • Vrbo: Going with a group? This charming stay offers four bedrooms + a full kitchen. (~$300/night)*
 
Bonus message from our partner: If you’re looking to book this trip, Going offers all the affordable flight hacks from your home airport. Sign up here.*

The Buy
Travel
  • Turn misplaced keys into a thing of the past with the Apple AirTag. The button-sized tracking device can give you step-by-step directions to your lost keys (or phone…or wallet…) and has a battery life of one year. Pro tip: Put one in your checked luggage and never worry about lost baggage again.*
