Natchitoches Parish is home to three fort sites, numerous Creole plantation homes with four open daily for tours, the Cane River National Heritage Area, many museums with rotating exhibits, historic homes and churches, an alligator park, a fish hatchery, and many recreational outdoor activities including fishing, hiking, canoeing, touring pecan plantations, or walking through a nature preserve. Every day is filled with things to do around Natchitoches.

In 2004, Natchitoches was named as one of only two Preserve America communities in Louisiana by the White House and Former First Lady Laura Bush. In 2005, the National Trust named Natchitoches as a Dozen Distinctive Destination for Historic Preservation, the only site selected in Louisiana.
