While temperatures are rising, so are gas prices and travel expenses. With so many wanting to go on beach vacations or tropical getaways, the cost factor can hinder any hopeful venture. Luckily, Ruston residents can easily take a day-trip or a quick weekend excursion.
Located within Interstate 20’s reach are the metropolitan areas of Jackson, Miss., and Shreveport.
