Alexandria is an attractive, family-oriented community that is often referred to as not too big, not too small. We recently celebrated our 200th birthday! The city was ranked 7th in affordability by a national publication in 2005 and the economic forecast is bright, named one of the fastest growing regions of the state. In addition to excellent schools, three universities and very reasonably priced homes, the city is proud of its cultural accomplishments including museums, theatre groups, a symphony, a ballet company, a wonderful zoo, just to name a few.

If you prefer golfing there are five beautiful courses, including one listed on the Audubon Trail. In addition, easy access to some of the states larger metropolitan areas including Baton Rouge, Lafayette and Shreveport make Alexandria the "Crossroads of Louisiana".
