"Downtown Baton Rouge, things to do and see"
North 5th Street in Baton Rouge runs parallel to 4th (the main street), but has quite a few interesting hotspots of its own. At the northern end, near the State Capitol is the State Museum, a popular place to bring the kids or the family. At the southern end, but still downtown, it lies at the heart of a small restaurant district that plays host to many of the city's best eateries. It would probably be better to walk this part of town rather than try and find parking.
