Located just a short drive from Baton Rouge, Denham Springs accommodates a wide range of tastes. The city’s Antique Village will leave the refined collector enraptured. The downtown cluster of stores offers low-cost items both down-home and decorative. In a different vein, the local Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World will beguile the rugged outdoorsman. The store’s floor area approximates three and a half football fields, featuring a boat showroom, a seafood restaurant and an unfathomably large selection of sporting goods, apparel and outdoor items. For those seeking relaxation, the historic Spring Park recalls the origins of Denham Springs. Within decades of its founding in 1828, the local mineral springs provided the setting for a health resort of the type that was popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The vibrant town center that grew from those origins has earned Denham Springs designation as one of Louisiana’s Main Street communities.
