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 of both cities, and the Alexandria Levee Park puts festival grounds and an amphitheater 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. Lake Buhlow in Pineville features high-speed motorboat racing, and the Alexandria Riverfront Center hosts statewide conventions and galas. History endures in Pineville's stock of intact 19th century homes and 18th century cemeteries. In central Louisiana, residents and guests enjoy a treasured, peaceful lifestyle. Diversity is celebrated through food, fun, family, arts, and festivals. Check out the City of Alexandria
