Jane, think twice about relocating here. If you are looking for public housing or subsidized housing, the wait list is long. If not, you can expect to pay high rent and high utilities. This is a college town and most affordable places are geared to students and not usually in very good shape. There is NO public transportation or even a taxi. And unless you are willing to work part-time, for minimum wage, with NO benefits, you're not likely to find a job. Other than that, it's a great place to live. Sorry to be such a downer, but I hate to see people move here unless it is to retire. Of course, it may be Heaven on Earth if you're coming fr somewhere where things are even worse.

You'd have to be coming from New Orleans or Detroit for this town to be better. Our town was once a quiet nice place, but like so many towns in the south, things have gotten out of control, that is unless you are in to drugs and the ghetto lifestyle.

Natchitoches is a quaint little town, however there is an ever increasing amount of crime including thefts, drugs, and violent crimes. Not many of these things are ever reported in the local paper (which is a joke). Wherever you have a large black population, there will be problems, and that is the case with Natchitoches, just be aware of this before relocating. And that's not a racist statement, it's a fact.

Don't come here as there are no Doctor specialists
that can take care of serious diseases like heart
disease, cancer, etc. Please read the posts concerning the Nat. Parish Hospital and you will see what I mean.

Tourists towns have this funny way of being able to be very attractive to visitors, but living in one would probably bring you hardship unless you're financially self-sustaining, or otherwise indpendently wealthy.. In this respect, this city is no different. JS.

1. Low income that's a strike against you. You'll find a lot of materialism here that rivals the east or west coasts and that is really saying something!

2. Don't know anyone here. Another strike. If you didn't "grow up" with these folks for if you moved away for several years and then moved "home" , it may be hard making connections even if you "know" people here.

Just idle curiosity--but if you don't know anyone here, and possibly never visited, how did you becoming interested in living in this region?
