It's always great when Louisiana is recognized for the charming place we all know it to be. Those of us who live here know we are the best - whether it's food, festivals, sports, fun, or just being a great place to live! The readers of '10 Best' and USA Today have voted Natchitoches, La as one of the 'Best Southern Small Towns in America', and we couldn't be more pleased for our central Louisiana friends! If you've ever been to the Christmas Festival of Lights, or seen 'Steel Magnolias', which was filmed entirely there, you know what a sweet place Natchitoches is. Check out the rest of the winners, and plan a road trip to visit some of the best Southern Small Towns this summer, y'all!
