Great little town to spend an afternoon walking around with friends and family before the Christmas lights along the river come on!

I wish I would have had more time to explore all of the shops downtown. Some unique and some touristy. They are across the street from the river. Not an attraction to miss!

We were there in the "off" season - which was great. The stores were all open and we could take our time and really check everything out. Everyone we met was super friendly.

It was so nice to walk down the street and shop. The little shops are so cute. I told my family it was like a clean safe bourbon street. I love that the street is brick.

Our visit to Natchitoches was on a Monday, about a third of the shops were closed. The stores that were opened included an eclectic mix of high end retail to resale items.
