My favorite thing about Monroe is the river--I never get tired of watching it and I'm mesmerized by its beauty. I've always been captivated by rivers, anyway, because of their power and movement (at least they are going places - ha), but this one is particularly enchanting.

Although I'm not sure why anyone would stop by Monroe on purpose (to see the Duck Commander, perhaps?), there are some interesting things to find here. Me, for example. :-)

I'll try to point out some of the more interesting sites.

    I am enjoying trying to find somewhere to stay in this area next year for a night or two when we do a road trip. Some fascinating small towns. I love the river picture.

    Cypress Inn- worst fried food in Monroe! Great view of Bayou DeSiard, but horrible food! I live in San Antonio now and when I was last in Monroe, I wanted seafood, but GOOD restaurants are closed on Sundays. I regret that Cypress Inn was open.

    The house is no longer pink - which led to some outcry among long time residents. Someone bought it, and re-painted it. They either intend to live there, or are living there now, and make the building into apartments/condos or something.

    A lot of people go by a river, lake, or beach and never think about the water. I live at the Jersey shore and you'll be surprised how many people never notice its beauty. Check my site out, I plan to up-date it soon with some water views.
