Point of Interest
“Natchitoches is known as the city of lights. Definitely worth the trip to downtown to see the Christmas Festival between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Fireworks on Saturdays and the entire downtown is decked with lights. So beautiful right on the river bank.”

Bar
“Good food, nice view, not very expensive. Service can be inconsistent especially when they are super busy, but overall, it's still good. Their fried catfish and shrimp, grilled tuna steak and fried mushrooms are a must try.”
