5 things business travellers need to know about Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge, the capital and second largest city in the US state of Louisiana is a major industrial, petrochemical, medical, and research center of the American South. Below are some things a business traveller might be interested to know about the city.

1. Pink Flamingo - the best entertainment spot in Baton Rouge

After a hard day negotiating a business deal, you can visit the Pink Flamingo for some alternative form of entertainment. Here, musicians and artists are not afraid to miss the note or paint a poor picture. Their mantra is “Poor taste is better than no taste at all.”

2. See the interior of US Navy Ship

Unlike many other ships in the US navy which are accessible by cleared navy officers, the USS Kidd, a Fletcher-class destroyer also known as “The Pirate of the Pacific” that is located on River Mississippi in Baton Rouge is open for tour.

3. Climate

Baton Rouge has sub-tropical climate that is humid throughout the year. Beware of the 100 mph winds that come from the high seas. The temperatures during summer can be as high as 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

4. License Changeover

If you are planning to stay in Louisiana for more than 30 days, then you have exactly 30 days to change your license to Louisiana driver's license. If you own a vehicle, you are required by law to also register it in person. Bring along a valid driver's license, proof of insurance if you own a vehicle, Social Security Card, and proof of address.

5. You will have to eat Cajun Food

Baton Rouge restaurants serve mostly Cajun food such as garlic fries, filet burgers, and turkey sliders etc. There is nothing wrong with the general American food, but the city wants to differentiate itself from the crowd.

Louisiana is largely a rural state and Baton Rouge features some of the best produce from the state. If you ever wanted to make a deal quickly in a city that welcomes investment with open hands, make a stop at Baton Rouge. You will probably make more returns that in any other city in the US.
