Quality of Life

Some People Call it "The Simple Life".  We Call it Home.

North Louisiana is many things to many people -- a great place to do business, a desirable place to live and raise a family, and an exciting place to enjoy night life,  world-class cultural and recreational opportunities, and a sportsmen's paradise. From enticing communities with small town charm to bucolic college towns offering an environment of innovation to inviting urban areas, you can find nearly everything in North Louisiana.

The American dream is still alive in North Louisiana.  Low housing costs, a below average cost of living and a low unemployment rate allow many to afford a better life style and in some cases to own their first home.  North Louisiana's K-12 school systems offer top quality options from some of the best public schools in the state to excellent private schools. A sophisticated and diverse healthcare system in North Louisiana provides quality health care with some of the highest patient satisfaction rates.  Whether you enjoy hunting for game or hunting for bargains, living in northern Louisiana offers something for everyone: a sense of community, great climate, and diverse entertainment and recreational options.  No wonder  Louisiana has been named the "Happiest State in the America" (Science, 2009). 

Arcadia offers a unique lifestyle.  A beautiful 18 hole golf course, two museums, Bonnie & Clyde Trade Days (a large meet and swap sale), Bluegrass music, great restaurants, and numerous antique shops draw people from all over the Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas area.  We’re located in the heart of Louisiana’s Piney Hills Country, surrounded by many lakes, as well as Louisiana’s best fishing, deer, and turkey hunting.  Arcadia and Bienville Parish are a true sportsman’s paradise.  Arcadia has two large modern senior care centers and more than 14 area churches.
