~~Adventure Tour Express~~

A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints” ~Wilfred Peterson
City on the Mississippi
Baton Rouge, Louisiana

From this magnificent old live oak tree on the campus of LSU...

to the lawns of the Old Louisiana's State Capitol  the city of Baton Rouge is a lovely place to visit and the people we met are courteous,  friendly and helpful.  The reason we visited Baton Rouge was to attend the wedding of my nephew and this allotted us the opportunity of sightseeing on a limited basis as visiting with family was such a treasured time!

The Shaw Center for the Arts is a wonderful place to visit with a wonderful view of the Mississippi River.

The view from the museum allows a perfect view of the river and it's vistas.  The barges moving up and down the river, the Louisiana Art and Science Museum and the destroyer USS Kidd in the background

But I think best of all was the food!  Yest indeed!  From Chimes Restaurant and Tap Room to Raising Canes Chicken Fingers there is nothing like the "flavor of Baton Rouge" unless it's the "flavor of New Orleans."  But since New Orleans was not on the menu this visit to Louisiana I can only speak to the foods I savored in this fine city.

Chicken and Asparagus at Sarop's Cafe.

Wedding, family, food and new adventures, it doesn't get any better than that!  Wishing all a week of your own grand adventures and  all they have to offer.

Thanks be to God!

Please join now and offer one of your adventures and allow us to travel with you on your tour!

All Aboard!!!
