Miss USA Competition - Host City



It is time to visit Baton Rouge, where the eclectic sound of blues and swamp pop fills the city, stately oaks shade the streets, the smell of spicy Louisiana cuisine tempts your taste buds, and the people live to Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Don’t miss the exciting festivals and seasonal events happening year-round. Whether it’s Mardi Gras, music, arts or the tradition of tailgating, Baton Rouge takes advantage of every opportunity to revel in the good times. Visit early for the star-studded Bayou Country Superfest held Memorial Day weekend, where you will see the hottest stars in country music in LSU’s Tiger Stadium.

Voted as one of the 15 “Southern Hospitality Cities” and “The South’s Best Foodie Cities,” you are sure to delight in the extraordinary cuisines that are indigenous to Louisiana.  From award-winning local dives and hangouts, to a booming restaurant and nightlife scene in the thriving Downtown Arts & Entertainment District, Baton Rouge is a culinary hot spot that is sure to impress!

Just steps from the Baton Rouge River Center, you can explore Baton Rouge’s walkable downtown and enjoy open views of the Mississippi River, historic architecture or one of the relaxing green parks. And getting to Baton Rouge is as easy as being there with the newly expanded Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport and major interstate systems.

The capital city is home to a bevy of unique accommodations and attractions. From old to new, the avant-garde to the antebellum, you will find just the right experience. That is the beauty of Baton Rouge; one of the most historic, vibrant, and always unforgettable destinations in the South!  #GoBR
