Useful Information

When to visit

If you are planning to stay in a vacation home in Baton Rouge, the best time to go depends on what you want to see and do. Spring is an excellent time to go, with the chance to attend Mardi Gras and the crawfish season in full swing. But fall is just as attractive, with warm daytime weather and nice cool evenings. Summer draws a crowd, but the humidity and heat can be a bit much for some visitors.


It’s probably best to organize your trip around the events you’d like to attend. For example, if you are a football fan and you want to watch the Tigers, head down to Baton Rouge in the fall. If food’s your thing be there in May for the Crawfish King Cook-Off – the world’s number one competitive crawfish cooking event.
