When the vibrant songs of the accordion and fiddle set your toes to tapping and fill your imagination with visions of gumbo and buttery crawfish, it’s high time to book Baton Rouge flights and get ready for a Louisiana-style romp. The capital city sits on the eastern bank of the Mississippi River, surrounded by historical mansions, plantations, and museums.
To jump-start your getaway in “The Red Stick,” book flights to Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport (BTR), which is just 8 miles north of the city’s hub. Take your dance steps to the sky!
Let your vacation begin as soon as you land. If you’ve reserved a car ahead of time, mosey over to the rental counters, which are located next to the baggage claim area. The best part of having your own vehicle is that you can explore far-reaching parts of the city at will, like the iconic Magnolia Mound Plantation House. Walk through centuries of architectural styles in one home, and visit the replicated cabins where the plantation slaves would have lived.
If you don’t want to fuss with navigating the city, catch one of the hourly shuttles that runs between the terminal and downtown with Capital Area Transit System (CATS). Not sold on shuttles? Staying at Hotels near Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport will cut down your commute. Otherwise, flag down a taxi or arrange for a limousine to pick you up outside the baggage claim area.
