There’s a whole world of history awaiting you in Northwest Louisiana. Discover DeSoto on the northwestern boundary of Louisiana, at the Texas state line. From natural areas like the Sabine River and Toledo Bend Lake to living history reenactments at Civil War battlefield sites to small-town Main Streets, DeSoto Parish beckons you with rural charm and hospitality. Drive through rolling, piney woods, view beautiful, mid-19th-century Greek Revival architecture, pick ripe berries in-season, and explore historic cemeteries. After dining on amazing, fried fish and hot water cornbread, shop local, eclectic stores for the perfect souvenir and then settle into a cozy bed & breakfast. Check out our winery, Kickapoo Twist Winery, and Vineyard.
Cycling, hiking, birding, and fishing are favorite outdoor activities, and with more than 30 structures on the National Register of Historic Places, the area is a treasure trove of exploration! You’ll find an authentic experience that hearkens back to a slower, kinder time.
Travel the Toledo Bend Forest Scenic By-way or the Gas Station Eats Food Trail in No Man’s Land, from DeSoto all the way down to Calcasieu/Cameron Parishes. Find itineraries on our website to help you plan your stay.
