Louisiana and then moving to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I find that the distance of the two cities Is so close. Baton Rouge Is far behind New Orleans In many ways. Although there are some features of the two cities that are alike, there’s an abundance of differences. For Instance, in New Orleans the food is full of soul. It’s compared to country food because of its fatty, tasteful, and very unhealthy, but it taste so good. A better word for it Is Soul Food.
Pickled Pork Tails and Tips are the most popular meats used to cook various meals In New Orleans such as Red Beans, Cabbage, etc. As far as music New Orleans Is known for Its traditional Jazz music. It’s more of a blues sound that comes from different instruments such as trumpets, trombones, and saxophones. Jazz Music is traditional in the city, and today’s music in the city is called “Bounce” which is nothing but hip hop music with a bounce beat to it. Lastly, New Orleans night life is full of fun.
There is something to do every day of the week not Just on weekends. The night life starts at around 12:AMA and could last until 5:AMA when the clubs and bars close. Since New Orleans Is a party city the people are totally different from Baton Rouge people. New Orleans people are more about going out frequently to have a good time, spend unnecessary money, and compete with the next person to look good. They are so caught up in trying to live the “Glamorous” life that they don’t realize they are spending more than average and begin living beyond their means.
As far as Baton Rouge, the food Is less tasteful because a lot of Ingredients that re used in New Orleans are not sold in Baton Rouge that’s needed for certain foods. The spicy and Cajun food in Baton Rouge is not as spicy as the Cajun and spicy food in New Orleans. Certain Food such as Hot Sausage can only be found in as links but in New Orleans you can find both links and patties. Another point that makes the two cities different is the type of music that most people listen to. In Baton Rouge they have they own type of style of music which Is called “GIG” music.
Gig music Is quite different from bounce music which Is played In New Orleans. Bounce can be slow or fast and its made from R&B and Hip Hop when Gig music is fast paced music that can only be on a fast beat to get you wound up, sweaty, and it’ll have your heart racing. A lot of yelling throughout the songs in Gig music is done. Now, as far as the Baton Rouge people night life and way of living, It’s a huge difference between the two clues. The people In Baton Rouge do not party Monday thru Friday like in New Orleans and when they do party everything shuts down at 2:AMA.
This means they have to start their night life at around 2:AMA. Since they only party two to three times per week they are able to save more money. Last but not least, Baton Rouge residents in my opinion live a much more secure and safe life. One reason being is that they are more family oriented. Their priorities are lines up because they are not too much as worrying about partying because of the limited opportunity and they are not trying to keep up with the next person. Therefore, Baton Rouge people can spend Orleans person.
In conclusion, you can see how different the city of New Orleans and the city of Baton Rouge are as I have described the abundance of differences. I can honestly say if you’re a person thinking for the future and not the present, Baton Rouge would be a better place to become financially stable and raise a better family then in New Orleans. At the end of the day there are many more ways the two cities of Baton Rouge and New Orleans are different that would make this list go on and on. Both cities are great in their own way. It Just all comes down to what you as a person want to do in life.
