Day Trips from Baton Rouge, LA
With summer knocking on our doorstep in Baton Rouge, planning out how we'll spend our summer vacation is constantly top of mind. Baton Rouge is renowned for its lively music, globally-influenced cuisine, and legendary southern hospitality, but what about beyond the city limits? There is so much to explore, including fascinating historical sites and diverse natural landscapes.
Road trips are an ideal way to see a lot in a relatively short amount of time, and this year is the absolute perfect time to take one. Luckily, you don't have to drive far from Baton Rouge to get a complete change of scenery, as there are many spectacular destinations within a one- to two-hour drive from The Capital City. You'll need a great playlist, plenty of snacks, and a road-trip-ready vehicle. Gerry Lane Cadillac in Baton Rouge has a tremendous inventory of new and pre-owned cars, trucks, and SUVs, including a large selection of Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. Consider a 2020 Cadillac XT6, the three-row midsize SUV where passengers get their own climate controls and USB-C charging ports. The Escalade is a fantastic road trip choice, with room for seven, loads of advanced technology and safety features, and more than enough storage space. If you don't have a large crew to haul, check out a certified pre-owned Cadillac CT6, with its enormous trunk space and plenty of head- and legroom for everyone.
Once you've decided on a vehicle, all that's left to do is pick a destination for your day trip.
