Central Louisiana, sometimes called the Crossroads or Cenla, spans the center of the state with a no-frills heritage of survival in the form of planters, farmers, and Native Americans. Here you will find the countryside is rolling, pine-scented, flat, and prairie-like. The cuisine is meat pies, cobblers, and down-home, the music country and western, bluegrass, and gospel, and the accent is southern. This areas cities and small communities are family-oriented, hospitable, and lie close together. It is a nature-lover's dream.
The Mississippi River on its east border leads to Plantation Country, with cotton and sugarcane fields and friendly towns in between. Within the twists and bends of the river are historical antebellum plantations, huge oaks veiled in gray moss, and a tangle of azaleas, magnolia, sweet olive, and wisteria. Louisiana's state capitol Baton Rouge and its Art Deco capital building, bustling industry, politics, and the main campuses of Louisiana State University and Southern University bank the river.
In nearby rivers and lakes, water-skiing, boating, and bass fishing are enjoyed or if you prefer there's plenty of golf, football, and shopping. The city of Alexandria is the epicenter of the Crossroads section, with its riverfront amphitheater, excursion boats, museums, and crafts. In nearby Natchitoches, the oldest city in the state, you will find a touch of New Orleans French quarter ringed by a number of plantations. It is the home of Northwestern University as well as the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts, a high school for the gifted and talented. Crossroads offers many diversions that color everyday life with the warm spice that is the heart of Louisiana.
