Port Hudson State Historic Site

Reviewed By LisandroVoyager - Washington DC, District of Columbia

You can absorb the fascinating exhibits in the visitors center then hike to various spots to see additional panels and exhibits, including the cliff over what used to be the Mississippi River where battle action took place. It has many trails for hikes so taking lunch or major snack along is recommended since the scenery is peaceful and there is no food or drink in addition to the drinking fountain at the Visitors Center.

Teddy's Juke Joint

This is a classic Blues Juke Joint

Reviewed By BMarquette - Wakefield, LA

Teddy's is the last of its kind... featuring fantastic Blues musicians from around the country. The bar has as much of a character as Teddy does! They have the largest chicken wings I've ever eaten, too. If you want to experience a true Blues concert, Teddy's is the place!

I arrived after a tour had started but was able to "join in" and watch the movie after the tour. Well maintained property & very interesting information. The barn in the back with farm equipment was very interesting. Nice display of sugar processing plant--and samples...MoreThank you for visiting The West Baton Rouge Museum!

Alex Box Stadium/Skip Bertman Field

Reviewed By 1NCfoodie - Charlotte, NC

This was my first (but not my last visit) to this baseball park. We had tickets just behind the visitors dugout. Seats were comfortable, game was lively, a lot of fun things going on. Concessions were just a tad pricey but the nachos with pulled pork were out of sight! I got a refill x 1 cup so it helped reduce the cost of beverages. Will be looking for tickets as the weather warms a little. Great fun family evening with the Tigers vs. Sacred Heart.

CoConut Willy's Zachary

Reviewed By Robert B - Zachary, Louisiana

The wife and I decided to have Daiquiri for Mardi Gras Day. Coconut Willy's in Zachary is relatively new, so we decided to give it a try.

Location:
In the Zachary Commerce Center located SW corner of Hwy 964 (Old Scenic) and Hwy 64.
Same center as Sammy's Grill.

Parking:
Plenty of parking, but you may have to walk a bit.

Seating:
Not a large bar. Self seat. 4 tall tables with 4 chairs each and 5 tall chairs around the bar.

It appears they do a healthy carry-out business.

They have 10 daiquiri machines, beer, and mixed drinks.

There is no table service so you have to order at the bar.

The bar attendant was very nice and did not mind providing numerous samples until the wife and I decided on Jungle Juice and Strawberry respectively. Very fast service!

Happy Hour is Mon - Thu till 7 pm
Mon - Thu Domestic beers $2.00 and Premium beers $2.50
Mon/Wed Med Daiquiris are $5.50. Tue/Thu Large Daiquiris are $6.75

Domestic beers are Bud, Bud Lite, Coors Light, Miller Light
Premium beers are Ultra, Bud Lime, Corona, Corona Light, Abita, Heineken.

Beer Buckets everyday are Domestic 5 for $11 and Premium 5 for $13.

We did not see a food or appetizer menu.

There are 2 large flat screen TV's on the walls

Restrooms are very clean

Also smoking is allowed.

Overall, a nice little bar for a quick stop or watch a sports game.

Copper Mill Golf

Reviewed By MichaelK614 - Atlanta, Georgia

The course is built in/around a nice, growing neighborhood. Rate was only $25 on a Tuesday afternoon with hardly anyone else on the course.
First the not so good, the greens. The condition in/around the greens wasn't too good due to lack of water. Not sure if they are having drought issues, but they could use some water. In no way is this a game stopper, but if the greens were in better shape I would've given a 5 instead of 4 rating.
Now the Good - 6 Par 5s - are you kidding me??!! Sprinkled in a couple drivable Par 4s and you'll be falling in love with this place like I did! The Copper tees (whites) play 6,190 so each of those Par 5s were reachable on 2nd shot for me (18 handicap) which was fantastic. Some holes had slightly tighter tee shots (#14 was the worst), but most had generous target areas. Highly recommend purchasing a yardage book ($2) for first timers.
It got 'buggy' later in the afternoon, but not too bad.
If you're in the BR area, make the drive - you won't be sorry.

It was a nice day and Mike was out for picture taking. Make sure that you go up the ramp to the Assembly Center to see him from both sides. Also, he likes to sit up there.
