A Day at the Park

Located just outside the city limits, a few miles to the south, is one of the best places for locals to enjoy a day in nature and unwind from the stresses of their jobs and day-to-day lives. Lake D’Arbonne State Park is 655 acres of pure outdoor bliss. It is a popular place for fishing, camping, and hiking, and has a number of accommodations available if you want to stick around and make a long weekend of it. They have 58 campsites, 16 cabins, and 2 lodges, all for your s’mores roasting pleasure. The pine-hardwood forest is also ideal for bird watching and wildlife sightings.

Peach Festival

Peaches are big in the south, and Ruston is no different. For more than 60 years, this town has been home to the annual Squire Creek Country Club Peach Festival. What started in the 1950s as a reaction to the abundance of peach production has since expanded to be a full-blown festival, with food stalls, games, 5-kilometer race, tennis tournaments, live entertainment and, of course, peaches. You can find the whole town out and about during the end of June when the festival is in full swing. Bring a bag and take some home with you for some classic pie.

Louisiana Tech Univer

Of all the things Ruston is most known for, being home to Louisiana Tech University has to be the top billing. The city itself is definitely geared to be a college town. There are a number of shops, chain restaurants, theaters, and other entertainment options, and the University Arboretum is a big draw for locals and tourists alike. Serving a student population of roughly 12,000 people is no small task, but the town of Ruston has achieved a nice healthy balance between college students and the regular population. Because of this it is a thriving town full of energy and diversity.
