Alexandria/Pineville is located in the middle of the state of Louisiana, and is called “The Crossroads “because all roads lead to Alexandria/Pineville. Alexandria and Pineville sit on opposite banks of the Red River in central Louisiana. This river brought people of many cultures to settle here. Its steady flow sustains us and ties us to our past. Our river is still a port of commerce, but also provides beauty and recreation. Our centrally located cities are accessible by four major interstates which allow for easy drive-in business and increased attendance for your event.
Whether you enjoy theater, dance, museums, music, history, ballgames or the zoo – we’ve got it all. Central Louisiana has something for everyone – from rodeos to ballet – from gumbo to sushi – whatever your taste may be. You can spend the morning shopping our unique shops, have a lunch of great southern BBQ or French cuisine, spend the afternoon enjoying the zoo or area plantations, stop in at a funky coffee shop, browse for antiques and enjoy a fine dinner filled with flavors from our diverse blend of cultures.
