This is the town and the reason to be in Natchitoches (Nak-a-tish). Great fun for a day. Don't plan on visiting on Sunday. It's shuttered!

Enjoyed browsing stores, most looked very locally owned and run. Shopkeepers were very friendly and helpful. There are a few galleries with interesting local art, several cooking stores and restaurants and bars. Easy walking , street parking. Good for a few hours entertainment

Shopping in the historic district along the banks of the Cane is really nice. Great shops and a real family atmosphere. We highly recommend a trip here.

There are a bunch of nice shops on Front Street, but not a bunch of antique shops. We did enjoy the Bathhouse, Louisiana Purchase and Cane River Candy Co.

It’s like a tiny, safe, clean, quiet New Orleans French market feel. Just a great little place to stroke through and shop and eat.

We stayed at a bed and breakfast within walking distance of the historic area. Easy to get around. Very well maintained. Enjoyed going into all the different shops. Lots of friendly people.

Natchitoches has a great downtown area with lots of cool shops. Some are more pricey. Some are very reasonable. There are antiques, and then there are brand new things. There are lots of clothing stores and all kinds of cool places to eat. Of course,...More
