What Bert Has To Say About Baton Rouge Metro Area

Home to Louisiana State and Southern universities, Baton Rouge lies about 30 miles up the Mississippi River from New Orleans and 65 miles from the coast. A rich past as an ocean port, center for antebellum commerce, and Louisiana’s colorful political history adds spice to the local character. There are many points of interest along the shady streets with their gracious old homes.
