While Louisiana certainly has its fair share of charming cities, few homes are as welcoming as a Monroe apartment. From artistic endeavors to southern fine dining at its best, Monroe's growth and potential for apartment-ites cannot be overlooked.
Home to the Masur Museum (possibly the largest and most well-respected gallery in all of Louisiana), Monroe's appreciation for the arts is well-founded. Apartment-ites with children would do well to enroll their little ones in one of the area's numerous dance schools, where they can master tap, ballroom and more.
Of course, what's dancing without some live music? Check out the latest in Zydeco and hot jazz at the Blue Monkey Tavern, where regional favorites belt out the tunes until the wee hours of the morning on an almost-nightly basis. Monroe apartment-ites will undoubtedly want to sample the specialty crab cakes at the Blue Monkey, or better yet treat yourself to a fine dining seafood experience at the Mohawk (where many claim gumbo practically originated!).
It's no secret that Monroe apartment-ites always want to look their best, so be sure and swing by Toggery, the self-proclaimed 'wardrobe architects'. Want to spruce up your apartment dÃ©cor? Hop on over to the Freckled Frog, where furniture, bedding and even children's gifts can all be yours. So whether you're looking for an apartment with close proximity to the arts, great dining or simply shopping, Louisiana residents should look no further than Monroe.more...
