Along the banks of the Red River, deep in the heart of Louisiana, Alexandria is a great spot to explore the great outdoors. From the spring-time azaleas to the fall foliage throughout the area forests in the Fall, even a simple drive can be an adventure for the eyes.

Located in “The Heart Of Louisiana”, Alexandria combines elements of north and south Louisiana neighbours. 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, and the Alexandria Levee Park puts festival grounds and an amphitheatre right on its banks. Boat tours highlight the river’s role in shaping Louisiana history, while annual bass tournaments speak to its lure for fishermen.

Things to Do

Explore the beaches and bayous of the Kisatchie National Forest, a popular hiking, biking, and horseback riding destination. Fishing opportunities are abundant, fish in the National Forest or drop a line at Cotile Lake, Indian Creek, and the Red River.

The Alexandria Zoological Park, features the “Louisiana Habitat,” showcasing the famous Louisiana marshes and swamps and their native residents, including alligators and cougars.
