Renting a Cheap Apartment in Baton Rouge

Louisiana’s state capital, Baton Rouge is a port city on the Mississippi with a reputation for great Creole food and vibrant culture. In French, the name means “Red Stick,” and the English translation is a common affectionate nickname for the area. Sample some of the famous gumbo, gamble the night away on a steamboat on the river, or roam the city listening to great jazz. Living in Baton Rouge can be just as fun as visiting, with a Mardi Gras that rivals the world-famous celebration in New Orleans. Baton Rouge apartments range from the simple and sublime to brand-new and luxuriant. Start seeing all the options right here on RentCafe.
