Let’s face it, Avoyelles Parish IS the center of EVERYTHING Louisiana. For many years, books, historians, and others have made reference to central Louisiana as being “somewhere else,” but the time has come to state the facts … Avoyelles Parish is the CENTER OF LOUISIANA!
At a recent luncheon to unveil their new logo, the Avoyelles Commission on Tourism/Travel Avoyelles also announced its new slogan, CENTRE DE LA LOUISIANE. As you can easily discern, that’s the “Center of Louisiana,” and they are looking forward to identifying themselves by this location that may only now be a realization for locals and tourists alike.
So next time you see the logo up there, you’ll know just what it’s all about … in our opinion, one of the best places in Louisiana to visit, live, and love … Thank you, Avoyelles Parish!
Now here is some more information about this lively, fun-loving, enjoyable travel destination (if you aren’t lucky enough to live there).
