Apartments in Ascension Parish -- A Fast-Growing Baton Rouge Suburb


Just a few minutes south of Baton Rouge along I-10 sits Ascension Parish.  Land-wise, it's one of the smallest parishes in the state, but the population here is one of the fastest-growing!  There are a number of popular communities here, but Ascension and Gonzales tend to see the most new residents.
But no matter which community you decide to call home, here's why so many people want to rent apartments in Ascension Parish:
-  There's never a shortage of fun things to do
If you love history, you'll love living in Ascension Parish!  The Oak Trees at Houmas House Plantation and Gardens have been standing tall for 200 years, and Houmas House itself is almost as old.  As soon as you step inside, you'll be taken back in time, surrounded by original furnishings and artwork.  For the full experience, be sure to have a Mint Julep on the porch!  Then, treat yourself to a night at the bed and breakfast at Bocage Plantation -- where you can sleep in a room that's nearly as old as the Louisiana Purchase!
For some modern fun, join the locals at the annual Jambalaya Festival, the Swamp Pop Music Festival, the Boucherie Festival, the Sunshine Festival, and the Awesome Art and Autumn Garden Arts Cultural Festival.  Or, head inside and treat the family to a day of fun at Premier Lanes Entertainment Center in Gonzales, where you'll get to go bowling and play the newest video games.
If you like to challenge your skills, the Pelican Point Golf Course is a championship facility that sits on grounds that were once a sugar cane farm.  It doesn't get any more southern than that!
-  Your credit card will never be bored, either
Like the attractions, the shopping in Ascension Parish combines the best of the old and new.  The Cajun Village in Sorrento is chock full of historic shops and galleries.  But just to the north in Gonzales, you'll find the Tanger Outlets -- an outlet mall with dozens of stores and restaurants.  
-  Higher education is just a stone's throw from your front door
If your kids will be living in your Ascension Parish apartment with you, they won't necessarily need to go to Baton Rouge to get some high education.  Instead, they can stay at home and attend River Parish Community College.  Or, if your kids are really on the fast track, they can opt for one of RPCC's accelerated workplace training programs, which last 2-16 weeks and offer instruction in a variety of fields.  That way, whether they want to work at home or head to a job in Baton Rouge, they'll be ready!
