“Too Many Women's Dress Shops”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Coming from Dallas I am use to fabulous shopping. The Historic District Shopping in Natchitoches, in my opinion, has too many dress shops that are too much the same. Once you have seen one, pretty much you have seen them all. I would suggest more variety: a bookstore with books about Louisiana and books by Louisiana authors; an arts and craft shop, selling arts and crafts from all over the state; a tea house, serving homemade soups and sandwiches along with homemade desserts; and a cultural center with more audiovisual history of the area and the ancestors who still live in the area, along with art, music, etc., from Northwestern Louisiana University and the state magnet school in the area.

“Always a treat”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We really enjoyed our shopping in the historic district in Natchitoches. There are a lot of unique shops. The only disappointment was that there was not as many antique stores as in the past.
The Landing Restaurant was closed because they were doing a lot of meals for the Louisiana Sports Museum activity. The ambience was great as always.

“Shopping”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We just loved Natchitoches! the atmosphere, the Bed and Breakfast(Violet Hill), the shopping and the restaurants were just perfect!. we usually make a trip there every spring. We haven't been there at Christmas time yet, but hear it is beautiful and fully intent on going at that time. We have nothing but good things to say about Natchitoches. our stay is quite enjoyable every time!

“Shopping in Natchitoches”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Not enough variety in shops - lots of bling and religious themed merchandise. One shop that looked interesting never opened during our 3-day stay. Disappointing.
