Hello everyone, this July my family and I will be going to Mississippi, we will cross into Louisiana in a few places, St. Francisville is one of them, are there any other places and things to see in that part of the state? I am really anticipating this trip and I can't wait!

Natchez, Mississippi is pretty close to Francisville and is a pretty little town with lots of Southern charm. New Orleans is obviously worth a visit and probably about an hour and a half/ two hours from there. Baton Rouge is less touristy but has an attractive downtown and a couple of historic sites such as the State Congressional Building built by Huey P. Long, which is the tallest in the country.

If you haven't already, take a look at The Myrtles Plantation. It's local to St. Francisville and could make a fun family experience. Just google "The Myrtles" for info to see if it's your cup of tea.

I'm familiar, that is where one of the stops is going to be. I've been researching the history and location of the Myrtles Plantation and have been interested in it since seeing it on "Haunted History" in 1999.

Thank you.

I was discussing going out there with my Grandma, she absolutley LOVES New Orleans, and I've wanted to see the New Orleans battlefields and the Oak Alley plantation, so it sounds like a pretty great idea, just need to get the money put together and the time planned out.

Is there anything else in the Baton Rouge and New Orleans region to see for a Civil War buff, and someone who is very interested in southern culture?

Yes, in Baton Rouge they have several museums right around the State Capital (New and old) We just went there for my daughters field trips.

Baton Rouge museums - Google Search

When you pass through Louisiana, you may want to take a stop in Lafayette. TONS of shopping and tons of places to eat. The river ranch neighboorhood is a fairly new neighboorhood that has lots of southern charm.
