The Optimal Place To Live In Louisiana
Baton Rouge
The capital of Louisiana, Baton Rouge is located just 80 miles from New Orleans and sits upriver from The Big Easy, meaning you can enjoy a less pest-filled environment.
You can reap all the benefits of living in the northern parts of the state. Here, the median home price is $213,350, and the cost of living is 20% lower than competing towns.
Healthy Economy
Baton Rouge is home to Louisiana State University (LSU), Southern University, and A&M College and offers a wealth of perks from living in a college town.
Besides access to educational resources, living in such a community brings you into close contact with individuals from all over the country, who also support the local economy.
Historical Value
The city was the location of many Civil War battles and has the honor of being the site of the only Revolutionary War battle fought outside of the 13 Colonies.
At LSU's campus, there are two 6,000-year-old mounds built by Native Americans, some of the oldest relics in the world. The historical weight of the city gives it a unique energy.
