... The Memorial Tower of LSU ...

Baton Rouge means "The Red Stick" in French, and it's the capital city of New Orleans. It's not a big town, and attractions in the downtown is limited. So, we headed to the LSU to see the college athmosphere. The LSU campus is nice, very green and architecture of some buildings are interesting. Their football stadium is huge, and there is a tiger (a real one) in a cage near to the stadium.

Another thing to do during the day is to visit mighty Mississippi. You can hang out next to the river for a while. During the night, a place called "Tigerland" may be good for going to a pub an chill out.

However, I strongly recommend you to take a swamp tour. It was AMAZING! You see the alligators (and the other animal species) in their natural habitat, you can feed them etc. If you're a foreigner like me, the accent of the tour guide might be hard for you to understand, but it's OK, since you enjoy the moment. But be careful while you're having fun in your tour, because the alligators say "It tastes like chicken!" Capiche! :)

Merhaba! :) Yes, it was an interesting experience for me. I like the cajun style food, as well. You definitely take the swamp tour, we took the one which located close to LaPlace. We ride on a regular boat, but some tours use the fast boats, and they're more expensive :)
