Travel Tips for Natchitoches
Dinner at Pioneer
Everybody was hungry by now, after our early lunch. We went to this old place in the old town, Pioneer Pub & Restaurant. I remember the starter, fried shrimp in spicy cajun style, oh God, it was SO GOOD!!! And I love the environment here, locals seems to know everybody in the pub, and it's like a community center more than a pub! lol
Natchitoches Christmas Festival
We were able to watch the 78th Annual Christmas Festival this past year, which truly is a sight to see!
I would highly recommend wearing some warm clothes, and heading down to the shore of the river and watch this great light show.
Fill up on a Lasyone's Meat Pie before heading down there!

My sister attended school here at LSMSA for three years. We visited often and have had many good times. The most impressive feature of this small town is their festival of lights at Christmas. Everything in town is covered and they have a big fireworks display on Christmas eve (a Louisiana tradition so that Santa Clause can find his way down the bayou).
The movie Steel Magnolias was filmed here during the summertime, which was amusing because they put up the festival lights in mid-July to accommodate. Everytime it shows the scene during christmas I really feel for the actors in their sweaters and coats, knowing it was about 90 degrees out!
