Living In Baton Rouge, LA


French for "Red Stick" and named this by French explorer Sieur d'Iberville in 1699, Baton Rouge invites you to experience its Creole and Cajun culture through delicious cuisine, foot-stomping music and colorful festivals.

This capital city of Louisiana sits on the eastern bank of the Mississippi River and provides residents looking for apartments to rent in Baton Rouge with an abundance of entertainment, from the Capitol Park Museum and ultra-modern Shaw Center for the Arts to LSU Tigers football and unique Creole eats.


As the second-largest city in Louisiana, the generous selection of apartments in Baton Rouge are suitable for a variety of tastes. From historic communities dating back to the early 19th century to newer developments around LSU, the city has something for everyone. Let us help you narrow your search with a look at some of the best neighborhoods in Baton Rouge.

  • East Baton Rouge: Located in the eastern part of the city is the Broadmoor/Sherwood Forest neighborhood. In this area, you’ll be close to the Old State Capitol, a beautiful building that looks like a castle out of a fairy tale. Residents give this area an A+ for diversity — saying it’s good for families and has great nightlife is too. Public schools in the area get an A rating average.
  • Downtown: This is a good choice for those who prefer to be in the hustle and bustle of the central business district. It’s also made up of beautiful historic buildings, particularly in Downtown East, near historic Spanish Town. Here you’ll find an artsy neighborhood that is the site of the city's largest Mardi Gras parade.
  • Jones Creek: A nice, quiet neighborhood, Jones Creek is well-maintained and pet-friendly. If you like to hike, the beautiful Shenandoah trails aren’t far from this neighborhood.
  • Mid City: On the west side of this neighborhood is the Garden District. This area features Old World architecture and contains three neighborhoods on the Louisiana National Register of Historic Places. It's pricey but comes with perks like close proximity to I-10.
  • Millerville: If you or someone in your family has ongoing medical concerns or you’re a healthcare worker with a job at Ochsner Medical Center, you might want an apartment in Millerville. The hospital is located on the outskirts of the neighborhood but near enough to make the commute an easy one.
  • O’Neal: Looking for a neighborhood with a nice suburban feel? Try O’Neal! Residents love this area because there are plenty of sidewalks, making it easy to take an evening stroll. The yards are well-maintained, parking is easy to find and it’s also a dog-friendly neighborhood.
  • South Baton Rouge: Two perks of this neighborhood: Less than 40 percent of the population has children and most residents report a commute of fewer than 20 minutes. That makes this neighborhood an ideal location for couples and single renters.
  • South Burbank: Located along part of the Mississippi, this neighborhood is ideal for those who are looking for apartments for rent in Baton Rouge close to restaurants and other nightlife activities. For example, you might like to spend an evening at the L'Auberge Casino Hotel.
  • South Campus: Another beautiful neighborhood located along the winding Mississippi River — consider apartments in this area if you’re a nature lover. Within the neighborhood, you have so many hiking and other outdoor activity options. Located here is Riverbend Park, BREC Farr Park Equestrian Center and the Levee Trailhead on Brightside Drive.
  • Southwest Baton Rouge: The great thing about living here is that the cost of living is lower than the national average. Commutes are on the lower side as well, averaging less than a 25-minute drive.
