Sterlington is a very small community but it is also growing all the same. There are several places you can connect with people. Schools are fantastic. One major downfall is there is not many places to hangout. There is Monroe with many more hangout spots and it is only 15-20 minutes away. Sterlington home prices are high but neighborhoods are safe, clean and pretty.

Sterlington is what I would call a simple little town, but that is an aspect that I enjoy. Cities are loud and boisterous with little ties to nature, but the Sterlington area is very close to nature without being overcrowded with buildings and always seems so peaceful. Overall it is just a nice place that is quite peaceful to live in without the hustle and bustle of the city scene. I hope Sterlington never changes from the quiet town that it is because that is how it has been for as long as I have lived there, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Though I do hope that the homes there become a little more affordable.
Sterlington is a very small town where everyone knows each other.Sterlington has a very good school system.Sterlington is well diverse and friendly.There is little to do in Sterlington so I would like to see more shopping centers.
