The Natchitoches Historic District encompasses 33 city blocks with more than 100 historical structures, including commercial and residential buildings, forts, and churches. Take a guided trolley or horse drawn carriage tour, or experience a different perspective by pedal boating on Cane River Lake. Stroll through town, admiring graceful old homes with sweetly manicured lawns and flowers that tumble with a burst of color over ornate wrought iron balconies. Discover unique shops, and many restaurants offering a chance to sample the local flavors. This road trip is a foodie destination, the flavors intrinsically tied to the culture, a blend of French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Indian and African. Indulge in Cajun and Creole, delicacies such as jambalaya, gumbo, crawfish etouffee, bananas Foster, and renowned Natchitoches meat pies. The meat pies are so venerated, that a Natchitoches Meat Pie Festival is held every September. Each season is host to a party, among them, the Cane River Zydeco Festival and Poker Run in August, the Adai Caddo Indian Nation’s Annual Pow Wow in October and the Christmas Festival of Lights in December.
