Baton Rouge Communities: Garden District

Baton Rouge real estate saw its first subdivision, Roseland Terrace, marked out in 1911. Today, Roseland Terrace is part of the Garden District, one of the upscale Baton Rouge communities.

Baton Rouge real estate in the Garden District is generally very nice. The historic Baton Rouge homes have been fairly well preserved. While there are still some good Baton Rouge real estate deals to be had in the Garden District, the homes prices in general are on the rise.

Because Roseland Terrace was begun with the idea of preserving natural beauty, the Garden District is one of the Baton Rouge communities with a great deal of foliage.

Bill in Louisiana Legislature Aims to Increase Funds for Tourism Advertising

In
order to fund a tourism advertising campaign for Louisiana, a bill has been
introduced into the state legislature, removing the cap on the amount of funds
used for tourism promotion from the sales and use tax.
The
Advocate reports on this move
:

The increased revenue will allow the
department to dedicate funds to a national advertising campaign and change the
perception across the country that Louisiana remains severely damaged from
hurricanes Katrina and Rita, said Angèle Davis, secretary of the Department of
Culture, Recreation and Tourism.

Increased advertising
about the state could also help Louisiana real estate, and Baton Rouge real
estate in particular, as more people see the state as a desirable place to
live.

Baton Rouge Communities: Spanish Town

One
of the most interesting and historically vibrant of Baton Rouge communities is
Spanish Town. Spanish Town is located on downtown Baton Rouge
real estate, in the Downtown Development District. Directly to the north of
Spanish Town is the state capital complex. One of the highlights of this area is
the Spanish Town Mardi
Gras parade
, which is one of the biggest festivals in Baton Rouge.

Because Spanish Town is
receiving a great deal of renovation (tearing down historical homes in Spanish
Town Baton Rouge is frowned upon), and because the downtown district is such a
desirable location, home values in Spanish Town can be quite high. However, as
you move east in Spanish Town Baton Rouge, the real estate becomes less
expensive. This eastern section is moving past the I-110 overpass — the only
part of the neighborhood where great Baton Rouge real estate
deals can still be found.
