National Geographic Traveler ranks Alexandria as one of America's top ten "wilderness towns" because of its incredible access to one of the country's most beautiful and expansive national forests.

With a population of over 46,342, Alexandria continues to grow in every sector of our society. The city of Alexandria is adjacent to the city of Pineville and separated by the Red River.
