Hunt for artistic scenes
If your crew appreciates art, then Ruston is an ideal place to explore. Home to several large murals and 11 oversized Bulldog statues, there is public art to be found all throughout town. Set out on an art scavenger hunt and be sure to take photos at each location – especially the interactive Ruston Strong mural in downtown.

Set up camp
Nothing says family fun and bonding like a true camp out. Grab your tent, lawn chairs, and s’mores supplies and head to Lincoln Parish Park for the weekend. Enjoy waterside primitive camping, walking and biking trails, fishing, and more at this pristine park and campground.
