Best Places to Propose in Baton Rouge
Louisiana’s capital city is often overshadowed by New Orleans, its wild little sister to the south. But Baton Rouge has more to offer than just Tigers football. Discover the best places to propose in Baton Rouge – and start narrowing down your list of perfect budget engagement rings to get ready for the big event!
The Shaw Center for the Arts
Catch a beautiful view of the Mississippi at the Shaw Center for the Arts, a multi-use museum, theater and arts complex and one of the most stunning places to propose in Baton Rouge. Visit an exhibit at the LSU Museum of Art or watch a performance at the Manship Theatre, then head up to Tsunami for a fresh and inventive sushi dinner. Ask for a table with a good view, and pop the question over dessert or sake.
Blend Wine Bar
Blend is a gorgeous spot to enjoy a gourmet dinner and a wide variety of wines. Call well in advance to ask about booking the perfect table for two. Or plan a small private party in the restaurant’s loft for a surprise engagement party with your closest friends and family members. Toast to your future health and happiness over a glass of fine bubbly.
The Myrtles Plantation
Take a trip outside the city for a bit of history and mystery. Visit The Myrtles Plantation, about 40 minutes from Baton Rouge, rumored to be one of the country’s most haunted homes. Take a guided tour during the day or in the evening and explore the beautiful grounds and the home’s antebellum architecture. Have a delicious dinner of Cajun and Creole specialties in the plantation’s Carriage House Restaurant, and if you’re feeling brave, stay the night in one of the guest rooms. Hide one of our beautiful budget engagement rings in your pocket, and find a quiet moment to propose on the property’s wide verandah or underneath one of the sweeping live oaks.
