Natchitoches voted one of the Best Small Towns in the South

Readers of Southern Living recently voted the City of Natchitoches as the best small town in Louisiana, and the No. 32 Best Small Town in the South in the magazine’s annual “South’s Best” list for 2023.

Southern Living states, “Louisiana’s oldest town has much more to offer than its famous fried meat pies. Visit sites like the National Historic Landmark District (with an array of architectural styles ranging from French Creole to Art Deco) and Melrose Plantation, a stop on the state’s African American Heritage Trail that is home to rare works by folk artist Clementine Hunter.”
