Well, there is Pitkin. And Wildsville. And Verda. And Simpson. All incredible metropolitan areas. And not to mention New Llanao. And Echo. And Flatwoods!

I can't believe I left out Dry Prong! You can get there by taking the Ball Cut Off Road. Think about that.

There is Baton Rouge if you have the gas (prices keep going up!). Or Shreveport if you like to gamble.

Why Shreveport to gamble?
If the cost of gas is so high for you, why not just go to Marksville or Creola?

Give it up. Alexandria will be nothing other than what you see. Road system is still in the 40,s. The big money boys control growth just as it was in the Bolton and Bowden days. The Caplan's was able to stop doing away with the south traffic circle because it would affect their business. They went busted and we still using the circle that was made in the 1940,s. Alexandria will never be nothing more than it has been for the past 50 years. So go shopping in Lafayette, Shreveport or Baton Rouge and witness growth and prosperity.
