20 Cheap Family Friendly Things To Do In Baton Rouge (16-20)

This article concludes this series and is Part 4 of 4, which details activities 16-20.





Cost: $0 For The Entire Family 

Go stargazing with the littles at the Highland Road Park Observatory. They have all kinds of cool science exhibits for the kids to look at and touch and then you get to look through the large telescope at the planets, all for FREE. The kids love this place. The schedule changes a fair amount so check before heading out, but Saturday nights are usually Family Nights and in the fall they have a great activity where the kids can roast marshmallows and have smores. We never miss this.

They also have a little daily science academy on Saturdays where children can attend for roughly $5 or $6.

Cost: $0 For The Entire Family + Concession Food 

At least once a month, BREC puts on a FREE family movie night. The location changes practically every time, but the kids really enjoy this. They usually have at least one food truck and snow cone truck there, so take a little money for the concessions or pack your own. You just grab a blanket and some lawn chairs and you are all set. Get there early, as you will want to try to score good seats on the lawn.

At the last one that we went to in June 2018 (Peter Rabbit), they had free popcorn, gatorade, ice cream and hotdogs. The movie time was listed at 7:30, but we didn’t actually start the movie until 8:20 because it wasn’t dark enough to see the outside screen. In other words, don’t kill yourself getting there on time, because the kids were just running around playing until just before the movie started around 8:15. It was a really great night and we had so much fun going to this event.

To that end, there were also tons of families who brought coolers with all of their own food and drinks, so do whatever works best for you. It was still very hot at that time of night and we had a spray bottle filled with water that was used about 40 times to cool off various people.

This summer’s schedule is as follows. If you click on the address, I have built links that you may use to find point to point directions to each park:

Cost: $79 For The Entire Family  (Includes Safari Feed For The Animals)

Yes, this one is a little bit of a drive, but it’s worth it. In Folsom, LA (about 70 miles away) there is the largest, totally free-roaming wildlife preserve in the country. It is home to over 4,000 exotic, endangered and threatened animals from all over the world. This is not a zoo or a petting farm. It’s an actual safari. The price tag is a bit high, but for a family of 4, you could bring this one in under $80 (including Safari animal feed), which for a safari isn’t really all that bad. You will load up in open air safari buses. The animals come right up to the side and you can feed them, if you buy the feed, which I included in the price above.

Admission Prices:

Adults: $19

Anyone Over 62: $17

Ages 2-11: $13

Ages 1 and Under: FREE

Bucket Of Animal Feed: $30 *It’s a huge bucket though, so just grab another family and split the price, which will make it only $15 per family. The kids go wild over being able to feed the animals, and if I’m being honest, it’s a pretty big thrill for the adults too. This is a wonderful outing for the family. It’s better than a zoo in my opinion, because the animals are free to roam and exist more naturally.

Cost: $0 For The Entire Family + Cabela’s Restaurant Food If You Buy It

Taking your kids to Cabelas (Hunting, Fishing and Outdoor Store) for the day may seem like a crazy idea, until you actually go inside of one. There is just so much to do here. There are so many different kinds of animals to see (of course, they are preserved and not alive) here. There are hunting and fishing games here that are free of charge. This place is huge and it’s air conditioned. There is so much to look at and to do and when you are tired, just pop into the Cabela Cafe for a bite to eat or a drink.

I promise you that your children will have a good time here. It’s an easy couple of hours worth of entertainment that is basically free of charge, unless you purchase something or grab lunch there.

In the Baton Rouge are, the local Cabelas is at:

Cost: $22 For The Entire Family + Lunch At Tabasco Restaurant If You Eat There

This place is just plain cool. When you pull onto Avery Island, you are at the actual home of the current bottling operations for Tabasco Sauce. You can take a self-guided factory tour for only $5.50 per ticket. There is so much to look at. You get to see the actual bottles being filled and labeled, you get a little sampler pack and the history here is just amazing. At the end there are so many cool photo opportunities with the life size Tabasco bottles, Tabasco bottle chandelier and more. There is a cute little gift shop too if you want to buy souvenirs, but it’s optional.

When you are done with the tour, head over to the Tabasco Restaurant, which you can walk to, and grab a bite to eat. They have a great outdoor patio where you can dine if the weather is nice, or grab a seat inside to cool off. Trust me, for the price, this day long adventure is hard to beat.


Everyone Over Age 4: $5.50

Everyone Under Age 4: FREE

Well, that brings us to the end. I know that was a lot of information, but I figured that since I was already looking it up for myself, that I should share it with the rest of the class. If you know of any other local treasures that we should all know about, please post them in the comments section below and please share this article with your friends.

The next time that I can’t think of something to do with the littles, I will have this list to fall back on to keep the machine moving forward :-). I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Thanks for spending some time with me. See you around out there.

20 Cheap Family Friendly Things To Do In Baton Rouge (11-15)

This article is Part 3 of 4, which details activities 11-15.




Cost: $5-$10 Parking + Lunch On Campus If You Eat There

Go to the Dollar Store and grab a few kites and some other little toys and then head out to LSU for a day of fun on the campus grounds. You can go see Mike the LSU Tiger, fly a kite, have a picnic and so much more. If you get hungry while you are there, there are fast food restaurants and available bathrooms in the LSU Student Union  and if you want to take a break from the heat. If you want to grab lunch and a book, then there is a Barnes and Nobles on the campus. Pack up the car, some snacks and head out to LSU for an inexpensive day of fun.

These are the hours for the Barnes and Nobles on campus: M-Saturday: 8AM- 8 PM, Sunday 11 AM-6 PM. The LSU Cafe is in that building, so you may grab a snack in there too. The Barnes and Noble/LSU cafe are located at 2 Union Square, Baton Rouge, LA 70803. If you click that address, I have created a link that will allow you to find point to point directions from wherever you are on the campus. Just click that link and then tap ‘Your Location’ as the starting address, flip you GPS to walking instead of driving and then head on over. Here is the phone number in case you need to call while you are on campus for directions (225) 578-5137.


To Get To The Visitor’s Center:

As many of the buildings on campus don’t have an actual physical address, here is the best that I can do for you. If coming from the Prairieville area, take 10 west to Dalyrimple exit. Go through the main gate and continue straight onto Dalyrimple until you come to the intersection of Dalyrymple and Highland. You will see the Visitor Center there. There is metered parking there, which you may purchase by the hour. Here is a link that I created to help you get there, just click here to have your phone direct you to this location.


To Get To The Public Safety Building For A Parking Pass If The Visitor Center Is Full:

If there are no parking spaces left in the Visitor Center, go back towards the traffic circle at the main gate. You are basically going to act as if you just came through the main gate again, which means that you will pass the main gate on your left, and then take the first right after the main gate. This road will become a dead end. Make a right onto South Stadium at the dead end. You will be looking for the Public Safety Building, which will be on your left side approximately ¼ mile down after you make the right at the dead end. They will issue you a visitors pass for $10 per day and instruct you where to park. Here is a link that I created to help you get there, just click here to have your phone direct you to this location.

**These parking rules only apply Monday-Friday. Saturday and Sunday the campus is open to the public and no parking permits are required.


People are pretty friendly on the campus, so just stop someone and ask for directions, but here are some LSU attractions worth visiting. If you click on the name of the attraction that you are trying to visit, I have created links to directions to get you there.

Mike The Tiger Habitat 

Depending on what time of the day you go, you may or may not be able to actually see Mike the Tiger, but you can always see his habitat. If you go around 6:30-7 PM on most nights, he comes out for his feeding and you can see him walking around in his habitat.

LSU Tiger Stadium

The Indian Mounds

LSU Dairy Store

They make their own ice cream….grab a Tiger Bites ice cream..yum! Ice cream here is roughly $2 per scoop for the little kids and it is unbelievably delicious.

Parade Grounds

This is a great place to fly a kite, run remote control cars around, throw a ball, or just let them run around and get out their wiggles. If you want to grab a coffee before you go over there, just look for the Barnes and Nobles on the corner near the parade grounds and grab a cool drink before heading over to the Parade Grounds. There are huge trees that provide massive amounts of shade for parents to cool off and get a break while the littles play. Take a blanket and chill while the kids run around.



Here is a picture to give you a general idea:

Cost: $0-$10 For The Entire Family Depending On What Supplies You Purchase To Donate

Yes, it’s fun to take the kids out and show them a great time, but summer is also a great time to teach them about giving back and community service. This is one of their favorite activities. They absolutely love giving back. It makes them feel grown up and responsible.

Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank:

Volunteer to sort and pack food donations or volunteer with your family to serve at one of their Family Nights. All volunteers must be at least 7 years old. Check their website calendar for availability and sign up on their website.

The kids absolutely love doing this. It is so fun for them to help organize the massive bins of food that they get to work with on Family Nights. They take all of the donations that are on about 15 pallets and they help to pull them out of the boxes and then find the correct bin to place the items in. At the end of the night, the kids get to choose a drink and a bag of candy as a reward for their help. The kids all work together and it is just a great night of community service. Make sure to wear closed toe shoes to protect your feet from pallets and heavy objects moving around.

Cost: $2-12 For The Entire Family Depending On Whether You Use Backboard Or Rent A Court

Whether you are a seasoned pro, or you simply want to take the kids and let them hit against the backboard (BREC calls it a hitting wall), this can be hours of fun. My kids love and I mean love trying to see how many times that they can hit and return the ball against the wall. It’s great for hand eye coordination and the kids always have a great time doing this.

Just rent the court or backboard for one hour and then go back if they are loving it, which they will. They have snacks, rackets, and more for rent and purchase in the little tennis shop on site here.

$12/Indoor Court Rental Per Hour

$2/Per Hour Hitting Wall/Backboard Use

Cost: $10-$20 For The Entire Family For Supplies (Cups, Lemonade, Etc)

Find a local charitable cause by simply Googling ‘local causes (add your city name). I found this for the Baton Rouge Area:

Call a local business and explain that you would like to set up a lemonade stand to raise money for the cause and pick a date together. It’s good business for them and more traffic for you.

Just grab a folding table, some cups and lemonade and you’re ready to go. Don’t forget to take change (quarters, dimes, dollars, etc) and make a sign with the logo of the cause that you are selling lemonade for by using free sites like and then printing them out at places like Walgreens in full color for just a few dollars. If you want to keep it old school, just grab a Sharpie and hand write your sign. No one will care. It’s all for the cause.

Don’t forget to create an online event and promote it on Facebook so that people know to come out and support the cause. It’s also a great idea to set up a Facebook Fundraiser page for people that may want to donate who are not local to you, but may still want to help.





Cost: $0 For The Entire Family + Groceries If You Purchase Any

Almost all, but check with your local store, Trader Joes hide a stuffed animal on their shelves every day. When your kids find him, they go to the counter and they get a free lollipop. While you are there, enjoy the free samples and pick up some food for a healthy outdoor barbeque with the family. My kids love trying to hunt this little guy down in the store. It’s a good way to distract them while you are trying to shop so that they stay focused and quiet. You’re welcome. 🙂

The local Trader Joes here is at (yes, they do participate in this activity):

Cost: $56 For The Entire Family 

This place is seriously hard to beat if you have children ages 6 and under. Older children may enjoy some of the activities, but this place is an all out wonderland for younger children. They have so many pretend zones; car wash, mechanic shop, grocery store and more. They have tons of arts and crafts. There are plenty of places to get their wiggles out with the outdoor picnic area, the inside climbing area, dance zone and so much more. It is a little pricey but it is a very clean facility and you could easily spend the entire day there and not get bored.

Cost: $20 For The Entire Family + Concession Food 

Grab a ticket for only $5 all day long, every Tuesday at AMC Theatre locations. That’s a steal when you consider normal ticket prices are between $8-$13 a piece. If you join AMC’s free AMC Stubs program, you earn points towards free tickets, drinks and more. They have a premium loyalty plan too, which is $15 per year. If you go to the movies even a few times per year, it’s totally worth it, because you get free upgrades on soda and popcorn and you earn free tickets much more quickly.

When you go on Tuesday, you can ask for the Cameo Combo and grab your movie ticket, a popcorn and a soda for only $10. Good luck beating that deal anywhere.

**Quick tip, when you are looking for a $5 movie, make sure that whatever movie you choose says Digital and not Dolby, Imax 3D or Real 3D. I didn’t know this the first time that I went for $5 Tuesdays and we had chosen a 3D movie time showing. The tickets ended up being $9.50 each. Needless to say, that defeated the purpose of $5 tickets. I just wanted to mention it so that you can avoid this little surprise.

Use these resources to score free or near free meals for the kids and build it into your day. The kids won’t know the difference, but you will when the bill comes. Go out, have fun, save money!

The library holds so many fond memories for us. We love to go to the library. I always make a deal with my littles when they want a new book. I tell them if they can’t find it at the library, that only then will we go to a bookstore. We haven’t had to go to the bookstore yet. There are so many resources available at the library from computer games and arts and crafts, to summer reading programs with competitions and prizes.

They have several free classes and art project events for children every day of the week, Monday-Friday. It’s a great way to keep them interested in learning all summer long. My kids always check out a ton of books when we go so that they can read and earn points for the Libraries Rock Summer Program. They have reading programs for teens and adults too, which you can view at the link below.

Cost: $36 (Includes Skate Rentals) or $24 (If You Own Your Own Skates)

Beat the heat and burn some calories with the kids. Take your own skates or rent them for just $3. The admission price is $6 or $7, depending on the day, but you can stay for the whole 3-hour session, so it’s actually a pretty good deal. We take our own skates and eat before we go, so the whole trip only costs us $18 for the three of us. They will be super tired after this, so it’s a good way to get their energy out on a rainy or super hot day when playing outside is not really ideal.
