It is a bit unfortunate, however, how close it is situated to the downtown area.
I kind of like it. It looks cool lit up at night, but I'm probably in the minority.
All of the skyscrapers came after the refinery, including the capital building.
Shreveport and Alexandria have better airports for Christ's sake
Alexandria only has 3 connecting locations linked by puddle jumpers, and that is with no regional competitors.
Baton Rouge is practically next door to both MSY and LFT and still
had over 100,000 more enplanements every year than Shreveport....it completely dwarfs Alex's airport.
For Baton Rouge to be as big as it is and to be the state capital, there isn't JACK shite to do there other than LSU.
I've covered this before.
Life is what you make of it. There's plenty to do in Baton Rouge. You can get out and enjoy it or you can sit around all year waiting for football to start. If you choose not to build a life for yourself, don't blame it on the rest of the city.
I live outside Memphis....a city at the bottom of every meaningful quality of life measure. I'm happy here because I want to be.
