The first couple days of our trip we visited Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Mobile, Alabama.
When we went to Baton Rouge it was Memorial Day weekend. There was no body around! It felt like a ghost town. This was kind of a bummer because many restaurants were closed, but the good part was that there wasn’t any traffic or waiting in lines so we could explore the city.
One of our first places we visited for BBQ (which is a must on a road trip with the Mr), was The Brick Pit. This restaurant was featured on Man vs Food and it was good…but it wasn’t my favorite from the trip. My favorite was in a different state, so stay tuned ;-)After Baton Rouge, we were off to Alabama :-)Some things just don’t change…even in a hotel. Poor Mr Turtle LOL Downtown Mobile was such a cute city filled with Southern CharmDuring the day, the Mr and I gorged on BBQ, but in the evenings, we feasted on scrumptious seafood.Crab bisque and seafood au gratin.
After Alabama we went to Florida, and it was Rooney’s first trip to the beach… stay tuned for Part 4!!!
Have you ever been to Baton Rouge or Mobile? What did you think?
