Get connected to History, Culture and Yourself!
Sometimes you just need to get away from it all. Ascension Parish is located on Interstate 10 just outside Baton Rouge, so it’s accessible in hours from all across Louisiana and the Gulf Coast. Once here, you’ll immerse yourself in a different world filled with antebellum plantations, majestic swamps, amazing shopping, a world class golf course, and wonderful people and food.
Choose to stay in a quaint bed & breakfast in historic Downtown Donaldsonville, a sprawling plantation on River Road, or at one of our numerous newly constructed hotels.
You can enjoy days amongst the legendary oaks and tour historic sites and art galleries or shop ’til you drop at Tanger Outlet Mall and Cabela’s– its your choice. For a sportier weekend, Pelican Pointe Golf Course is a great choice, as is the new Premier Lanes Entertainment Center that has much more than just bowling.
Whatever kind of getaway it is that you’re looking for, you’ll find it conveniently located in Ascension Parish.
