    My boyfriend and I are moving to Baton Rouge in a month or two, and we have not yet visited. We are hoping to buy a house. He is transferring so a loan should not be a problem, but any suggestions on where to look?

      Hi! I think you will LOVE baton Rouge. We moved down here from New York about a year and a half ago and absolutely love it! Our Realtor was trying to get us to buy a cookie-cutter house in a development out in the burbs but we really wanted a charming little house in an interesting neighborhood and we did a ton of research to find our dream home.

      We bought a house in a quaint little neighborhood called “Ogden Park” in a part of Baton Rouge called “Mid-City”. I’m a little biased in my recommendation here because I am a block captain and on the board of our neighborhood association. It’s about 2 miles from downtown just a couple of blocks off of Government Street. We have an active Facebook page with over 160 neighbor members and we share news and events and look out for each other though there. Everyone knows each other and it’s a great little community with a lot of diversity. Government Street in Mid-City is currently being revitalized and has a ton of cool little boutiques, restaurants, shopping, etc. It’s also home to one of the best Magnet High Schools in the country. Below are a few links:

      Other notable neighborhoods include:

      Spanish Town – Located between the Mississippi River and I-110, it is one of the city’s more diverse neighborhoods and home to the State Capitol and the city’s largest Mardi Gras Parade.
      Garden District – The Garden District is located in Baton Rouge’s Mid-City area where Park Boulevard intersects Government Street. The Garden District is an established historic area with many upscale homes.
      Poets & Philosophers – A small neighborhood near Hundred Oaks with semi-Shotgunhomes from the 1940s.
      Capital Heights – Cute neighborhood in Mid-City near Ogden Park.

      I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
