[Family Vacation Filter] What fun and family friendly ideas are there for a family of hipsters to go a spring vacation that's within 4-7 hour drive of Baton Rouge, LA?

We've scheduled the time off of work (April 1st-6th) and are planning on taking our first "big" vacation as a family with our young son (who will be 22 months at the time of the trip). We're not interested in flying anywhere since that would be cost prohibitive for us. What cool things are there to do within a 4-7 hour driving distance of Baton Rouge? I realize that this may be around the time that a lot of schools are on spring break and I would like to avoid that madness as much as possible but at the same time I think going to the beach would be pretty cool (minus the drunken college kids). Are there any local festivals going on around that time?
Also, my other question is if we go with the beach as an option, how does one go about finding about beach front property rentals? It would be awesome to rent out a condo or something so it had a more homey feel AND where I could maybe throw together a few meals for those times where we weren't interested in dining out. The problem is I don't even know where to start looking through the maze of rental property websites once I've figured out a location. Help me Hive Mind! If you don't, no one can!
