What Bert Has To Say About Alexandria Metro Area

Alexandria, located at the center of the state’s major transportation routes, is a non-descript southern city. During the Civil War, Federal forces wiped out most antebellum buildings, and today the city lacks historic charm. The downtown area, located on the banks of the Red River, with the aptly named Pineville to the northeast, is a mix of decline and modest renewal. The nearby Kisatchie National Forest provides some recreational opportunities.
