Enjoy a few hours amid the greens, fairways and bunkers of Frenchman's Bend Golf Course, one of the best places to tee off in the Monroe area. Grab your clubs and lucky putter and challenge the course average, then finish the day in the clubhouse sharing a cold beer with friendly locals.
If you love food and shopping, you’ll love the various stores at the Pecanland Mall. See what locals are wearing and buy some gifts or treats.
When the weather’s fine, pay a visit to Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo, a place where visitors can spend time outdoors. Join in a ball game, take a few photos, or just relax in the shade. This park is the perfect match for all moods and seasons.
