Baton Rouge

As the home of Amelia Fine Homes, and the capital of Louisiana, metro Baton Rouge has all the history, charm and culture of nearby New Orleans — but without the trappings of a year-round tourist destination. Located on the banks of the legendary Mississippi River, and with the year-round heat you expect in the South, Baton Rouge moves at a relaxed pace, but for residents and visitors alike, the city is rich with parks, playgrounds, running trails, dog parks, sports venues, concerts, dining establishments, museums, historical sites (USS Kidd at the Nautical Centre and the Old State Capital building), fishing and hunting areas, cultural events and other experiences unique to the city and its surroundings.

Baton Rouge has grown by an impressive 36% since 2000 and is expected to fully double in size to 860,000 residents by 2035. This growth is largely the result of a healthy job market in engineering and health care, but also to the large connected community that works at or attends Louisiana State University. With this growth in population, both real estate and construction remain every active in Baton Rouge, with new residential and commercial builds happening across the metro area — including a host of stylish bars and eateries to keep up with demand.

Sports has a rich heritage and large fan base in Baton Rouge — whether it is LSU football fans coming together at Tiger Stadium to cheer on their team.
