Plan a Romantic Weekend or Weekday Visit with Friends to Historic Natchitoches, Louisiana.
The National Trust for Historic Preservation has announced that the Natchitoches Historic District is one of the Five Most Romantic Main Streets in the United States. Here is what they had to say about Front Street in Natchitoches. “What do Main Streets have that the malls don’t? Atmosphere… History… Romance. They’re the place to go for unique experiences. Candle-lit restaurants, unique wedding destinations, charming streets for strolls, intimate wine-tasting rooms, quaint B&B's, special historic spots — these are just a few of the things that make Main Street districts a romantic and friendly destination. This year, we scoured the nation to find the Most Romantic."
Stay in a downtown Inn or a beautifully furnished century old Bed and Breakfast home. Dine on local Cajun and Creole cuisine. Enjoy a Steel Magnolias Tour of the filming sites of the movie and a visit to a French Creole Plantation when you Tour Natchitoches with Barbara.
