Alexandria, LA

Alexandria, the seat of Rapides Parish, is located on the Red River in central Louisiana. This 200-year-old city is situated in the middle of the Kisatchie National Forest where outdoor activities are enjoyed year-round. During the American Civil War, Alexandria was occupied twice by Union forces and burned in 1864.

With a low cost of living, a favorable tax structure, and moderate winter climate, Alexandria has become a desirable destination for retirees. Still, the median age of the city is less than 36. The city is home to more than 46,000 residents. Median income and estimated home values are below the state average.
