Natchitoches, Louisiana has lots of activities and festivals throughout the year. Natchitoches also has NSU, which is a college that has many degree programs for an individual to obtain a degree. My parents took me to Natchitoches since I was a little girl, therefore I have lots of special memories. I also met my fiance while attending NSU.

There are several key aspects that make Natchitoches a great city. One being Natchitoches is the oldest city in Louisiana. There are numerous historical sites visitors can tour including several plantations, Cane River Heritage, and even the Steel Magnolia house from the movie. Natchitoches is also known for their Christmas festival. Lots of tourist come to see all the beautiful lights and festival activities. Natchitoches also is the home of the meat pie, which is one of the the official state foods of Louisiana. The only negative thing about Natchitoches is the traffic. Since it is a fairly small city, traffic from college and tourists can be a bit heavy.
