I love our small town. Fixed on the west side of the Mississippi River, Ama is a small 5 mile strip with roads branched off the great River Road. Everyone is close and it is a great place to raise my family!

I love Ama, it's a beautiful town with lots of amazing people. The town has lots of space for new people and has lots of nature. The people who live here have been living in this area for a long time, so everybody knows everybody. I love that feeling, and you can't beat that small time feeling.
I was born and raised in Ama, LA. It is an extremely tiny town with basically no crime. A big downside is that it isn't near anything!
