South Baton Rouge Reviews
With a change in my family's situation, I have moved into the south baton rouge area. This area is close enough to all venues that I can get around without too much hassle. There is still a great deal of traffic at the regular times of the day. Being close to LSU and the casino has its advantages on game day. The cost of living is very diverse ranging from very high to very low depending on which area you are driving through.
I moved from Houston, Texas to live here and I have to say, Baton Rouge, Louisiana is one of the most racist, corrupt, ignorant places I've ever encountered. Our governor spent his entire term trying to sabotage our public schools even though he himself graduate from a public school in Baton Rouge. Our citizens openly fly confederate flags, and the city is so segregated that often you'll come across people who know nothing about other cultures because they have never had any interaction with them and have no desire to because racism is accepted here. I miss Texas every day. I miss the diversity and strive towards better education and peoples' desire to be educated.
My experience in south baton rouge has always been a pleasant one. I have lived in S. baton rouge for 20 years before moving away. I frequent the area due to my mother still residing there. The area is comfortable because everyone knows each other. Jobs are average and crime could be better but all in all I love the place. I am a LSU fan so living close to the school has always been a plus.
