Pineville has a very homey feel. It isn't too small or too big; it has about 15,000 residents. Since it is an older town, it as modern as I would like it to be. The growing younger generation in this area don't have much to do. There aren't many fun safe environments for them to go. Some upgrades and new buildings are starting to take place, but not enough. It's really only good and fun if you know Pineville like the back of your hand. All in all the only problem with Pineville is there aren't many recreational and modern options for the growing city.

There is nothing that is above average about the city. Nothing for kids, teens, or young adults to do unless you drive to Alexandria and even then there isn't much to choose from. Just about everyone here is nice though, which I appreciate!
Pineville, Louisiana has been a wonderful town to grow up in. It is small in size but is close to a larger city just across the Red River. We live not only 15 minutes from the larger city, Alexandria, but our neighborhood feels like it is in the country and away from the hussle and bussle of a large city. We have all the amenities we need close by such as grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, churches and convenient stores. Then we can travel a short distance to theaters, department stores and events.
