Shopping in the downtown historic district is a pleasant little half-mile of boutiques, specialty shops, and a few restaurants, each with its own appeal. The boutiques can be pricey, but that's to be expected in a small shops in a tourist location. There are many unique finds to be had and the Southern hospitality of the shop ladies is always... More

This area had some of the best fall decorations we've seen anywhere. Every post or column had full cornstalks with corn on them, cotton plants with cotton bolls on them, and other fall items that were fantastic real decorations. Plus they have hanging baskets of beautiful flowers everywhere. The red brick streets are great and take you back to older... More

Natchitoches is a very quaint town. 300 years old this year. Plenty of shops and just fun to walk aroud and see the home and sights.

Loved walking along the river going in and out of the shops! Such a variety of shops for a small town. Really enjoyed going in to them and speaking with the owners. Everyone was so friendly.

Loved the shopping and especially the kitchen store. The problem is most shops do not open until ten.

I have visited the downtown shopping district three or four times over the years. Basically it's three to four good blocks long, together with a few attractions on two side streets. Without a doubt the class act among the stores is the gift shop Merci Beaucoup, owned by the mother of the guy who runs the restaurant next door by... More

There really is not that much shopping here in my opinion. It is worth the time to drive over and spend an hour or so in the area, just don't count on a lot of stores. A lot of the downtown is just business offices. Very pretty area facing the Cane river.

We were passing through Louisiana and had planned to spend a few hours and some of our money here, but too many places were closed. I would have thought that a tourist destination would have more open, especially the Visitor Center. Would love to see more stores with local items, a nice casual dining spot that isn't a bar, and...

Went to Natchitoches on our anniversary for an overnight stay. Never been before so planned our trip using tripadvisor. The historic district is the thing to do there and can be accomplished in half a day of walking around the shops. Mix match of antique stores, kitchen stores, trendy clothes mainly for women, a little historical stuff, etc. Most of... More

We love it in Natchitoches, most everyone you meet are very kind, great hospitality, the scenery is awesome all around Front Street, clean everywhere you go, we enjoyed the Fourth of July fireworks display this year, was better than any of the Christmas lights/fireworks we have gone to.
