Natchitoches: In all of Louisiana, no other place is as unique as the Cane River Country. Located in Central Louisiana, you will find the original French Colony in Louisiana. Established in 1714, Natchitoches (Nack-a-tish) retains its European flavor through its architecture, heritage, and lifestyle. At the heart of this National Historic District lies Front Street, a brick thoroughfare where wrought iron balconies, restaurants and shops face the beautiful Cane River Lake. Chances are that the thing you’ll love most about Natchitoches (aside from the famous meat pies) is the charming 33-block Landmark district-a shopper’s paradise and a bed & breakfast lover’s dream.
Leesville: Leesville is a city in, and the parish seat of, Vernon Parish, Louisiana. Home to the Fort Polk U.S Army installation, the Leesville community is diverse, community-oriented, and offers the small-town environment with modern technology and advances. The area's rich history began as part of the "No Man's Land" area which was a strip of disputed territory along what use to be a border with Mexico. Outlaws and badnits as well as heroes and soldies made their mark on this fertile soil. You can enjoy the amazing historic district in Leesville or spend some time enjoying beautiful Lake Vernon or WolfRock Cave.
Ville Platte: Ville Platte is a city in, and the parish seat of, Evangeline Parish, Louisiana. Throughout the year, visitors find Cajun food and swamp pop music galore, a historic district straddling El Camino Real, the Spanish colonial-era trail connecting New Orleans to Natchitoches and easy access to Chicot State Park with its many acres of wooded, rolling hills and meandering, cypress-studded waterways. With year-round hunting, fishing, golf and countless other opportunities for outdoor recreation, it is easy to see why Louisiana's nickname is "Sportsman's Paradise.”
Alexandria: Located in “The Heart Of Louisiana”, Alexandria and the adjacent Pineville, just across the Red River, form a hub, combining elements of north and south Louisiana neighbors. Cajun bonhomie and an annual Mardi Gras celebration thrive among all the amenities of a modern Southern city. A robust sportsman's culture is nurtured by outdoor opportunities at Kisatchie National Forest, nearby bayous and manmade lakes. The Red River is the focal point of both cities, and the Alexandria Levee Park puts festival grounds and an amphitheater right on its banks.
