Finding Apartments in For Rent in Monroe, LA

Monroe, LA, sits across the Ouachita River from its sister city of West Monroe, LA, and the two are known as the Twin Cities of Louisiana. Along with its natural surroundings - the Bayou De Siard flows through parts of Monroe and the town's area is almost 12 percent water - the area is known for its large percentage of employment in education and health care, including major employers such as the Ouachita Parish School Board, the University of Louisiana at Monroe, St. Francis Medical Center, and Glenwood Regional Medical Center. Chase and Walmart also count themselves at the top of the major employers in the area. If you are considering a move to Monroe for personal or professional reasons, whether by yourself or with your family, there is a good variety of apartment options throughout the city, each with its own advantages location-wise.

Neighborhoods in Monroe, LA

Monroe has the great advantage of being a very ethnically diverse city, and this is true of most of the major neighborhoods. So despite the fact that it is a mid-size town, such ethnic diversity gives it a more cosmopolitan feel and a rich culture. Your choice for apartment location will depend on priorities such as proximity to work, church, or shopping, entertainment, and other important activities and conveniences. Some of the top neighborhoods are briefly detailed below.

  • Riverside and Country Club: The beautiful Ouachita River winds down the western length of Monroe and creates the Bayou De Siard tributary. The two bodies of water define the city of Monroe geographically and in some ways residentially. Much of the most desired apartment space is near the river or on its shores. The Bayou De Siard Country Club is one of the more exclusive clubs in the area, and the surrounding area features choice apartments.
  • City Center: This area features the greatest access to conveniences such as shopping, dining and entertainment. It is also the business center of the city, and the place of employment of its considerable workforce of office and administrative support and sales people.
  • Lakeshore: This quiet residential area is best suited for families, given its proximity to many of the schools in the town. It is named after Lakeshore Drive, the road that runs adjacent to the winding Bayou De Siard, and it is also where many employed by the school system reside, given that compared to the averages elsewhere in the country, Monroe residents have some of the shortest commute times.
Cultural and Entertainment Attractions in Monroe, LA

For a mid-sized town, Monroe has an extravagant wealth of cultural attractions, including a children's museum, a museum of the arts, a botanical garden, a major movie complex, a military and aviation museum, and an African American heritage museum that has been identified as part of the African American Heritage Trail. Other attractions include the Louisiana Purchase Gardens Zoo, which focuses on education, conservation and preservation in its service of the surrounding communities and many yearly visitors. The Monroe Civic Center is one of the major draws for visiting performances including rodeos, circuses and equestrian competitions. Monroe also proudly hosts the annual Ms. Louisiana beauty pageant. So you won't find yourself short of things to do here after you find your apartment.

Shopping in Monroe, LA

Pecanland Mall in Millhaven Road is the largest shopping center in northern Louisiana and features a large food court, a carousel, a 10-screen movie complex, and major retailers such as J. C. Penney, Old Navy, Toys R Us, Sears and Dick's Sporting goods. The apartments in the surrounding areas have the advantages of ready access to one of the premier shopping areas in the region as well as dining and entertainment.
