Local Medical Providers

Baton Rouge is home to several highly-rated hospitals, and three of the best hospitals in the city include:

  • Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center - Our Lady of the Lake in Baton Rouge is an 800-bed medical center with a network of 450 providers. This facility specializes in heart, cancer, and stroke services, and features two dedicated emergency rooms.

Climate and Weather

Baton Rouge is located in the Southeastern United States, a fair distance inland from the coast. The region’s climate type is considered humid subtropical - the yearly temperatures are relatively mild and lean towards the warmer side even in winter months. Rainy days are about as frequent as the national average, but the rainfall tends to be heavier and more consistent.

Demographics and Values

Baton Rouge offers much of what one might enjoy about its neighbor, New Orleans, but on a smaller scale. Creole food and Zydeco music are just as easy to find in Baton Rouge, minus the hustle and bustle of the big city. The capital of Louisiana, Baton Rouge is also a college town, home to Louisiana State University, and this is reflected by its fairly young population. This is also evident in its political leanings, as the city tends to vote more moderate and slightly more towards the Democratic side than the conservative image of much of the South and the state of Louisiana might lead one to expect. Much of the local economy is based on the petrochemical industry, including oil refineries and chemical plants. Louisiana State University is also one of the region’s major employers, as are area hospitals and the medical research industry.

Baton Rouge is considered neutral to members of the LGBTQ+ community. This means that the climate of acceptance varies widely across the city. Some neighborhoods like the university district may be much more welcoming than other areas while some may face discrimination in other parts of the city.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Despite seeming like it may live in the shadow of its bigger sibling New Orleans, Baton Rouge has a character and a charm much its own, especially appealing to those who don’t feel at home in a large urban area. As the state capital and home of Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge still has plenty of activities and goings on that you might expect from a larger city but without the hectic pace. Living in Baton Rouge, one can find some of the same cultural qualities that make The Big Easy an iconic destination for many.

Louisiana is world-famous for food, and Baton Rouge is no exception. Located in the heart of the South between New Orleans, Texas, and Mississippi, there are no shortage of great dining choices. Whether your taste is in barbecue, seafood, or Cajun fare, you can find a restaurant to satisfy your interests. After dining, you can take a stroll in one of the many city parks, and the mild weather makes that option a frequent possibility. The Independence Park Botanic Gardens is a wonderful place to stroll and observe plant and floral life, featuring sectioned gardens dedicated to irises, day lilies, roses, and even butterflies, as well as a sensory garden and geometrically-arranged French-inspired garden displays. The Botanic Gardens is open during daylight hours and admission is free of charge.

Baton Rouge has also earned the distinction of being home to the largest shopping mall in Louisiana. The aptly-named Mall of Louisiana is a two-story affair with over one hundred retailers, as well as a multiplex movie theater. Interestingly enough, the Mall of Louisiana also houses the third-largest indoor carousel in the world.
