Hey y'all! This page is dedicated to all the fun things you can do and find here in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas! I am so excited to get this information together and share it with you all. So often people are wanting to do something different and fun, but don't know what there is, so hopefully this can be a resource for you!
One of the things that Will and I always say we want to do is ride bikes together, but bikes are so dang expensive and we really only want to ride them a few times a month. Another thing is that we don't want to transport our bikes wherever we want to ride.
Well I have found the perfect solution! Downtown Baton Rouge has multiple stations set up with groups of Teal Blue bikes with the label Gotcha on it which is the brand name. All you have to do is download the app on your phone, add your payment information, then scan whatever bike you are by and want to hop on. Then you pay 10 cents for every mile you ride. We rode around all day and only spent about $10 each. Whenever we are done, we find a station and lock it back up and press End Route on the app.
I have been to a few cities like Austin that have a similar set up with bikes, so if you aren't local to Baton Rouge, definitely try to check it out and see if your city has this service.
Overall, I love that the Gotcha App and being able to ride a bike whenever I want, but do not have to maintain and travel with. I think that. I think that it is very affordable with only spending 10 cents per mile. I love being able to go to my city, pick up a bike, and explore.
If you find yourself bored at home and not wanting to buy a bike, drive yourself to downtown Baton Rouge and get to riding! Let me know if you decide to ride with Gotcha!

L’Auberge is a casino on the Mississippi River and is a hidden gem tucked away out of the hustle and bustle of city life. It is located off of Nicholson and is surrounded by trees and the river. It is the perfect place for a night out of the weekend as they have a fun bar with live bands or you can have a luxurious stay. They have tons of things to do besides playing the slots. They have concerts, coffee shops, and restaurants too.
