Spanning four Louisiana parishes, the South Louisiana region offers you a variety of experiences. Since it's an urban and rural region, you can choose to live in a small community or within the city limits of Baton Rouge. Whether you choose to relax on False River in Pointe Coupee, enjoy Louisiana’s 400 festivals, or attend events at one of our local universities, there are a number of opportunities for you to find the experience that feeds your soul.
