Alexandria: Southern Charm in Central Louisiana
As the ninth-largest city in the state, Alexandria is a bustling area of Central Louisiana and offers families, college students, professionals, and seniors a wonderful place to live. Once a community involved with French trading post Poste du Rapides – which may have been located in nearby Pineville – Alexandria is a thriving city that offers plenty of educational and employment opportunities. Alexandria is served by Rapides Regional Medical Center and CHRISTUS St. Frances Cabrini Hospital. Louisiana State University at Alexandria remains a popular choice for area students, and Alexandria is also home to many primary and secondary schools within the Alexandria School District. Residents also enjoy a lively cultural calendar that includes signature events like Mardi Gras, River Fête, and Winter Fête. In Alexandria, there’s something for everyone to love!
