For the entertainment of visitors, Arcadia contains several antique stores, two museums, an 18-hole golf course and a handful of restaurants. Arcadia became well known in 1934 when the notorious outlaw couple Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker were ambushed by the Bienville Parish Sheriff's posse and brought to Conger's Funeral Home in town. Arcadia still celebrates this reputation with the Bonnie & Clyde Trade Days several times a year. This event is held in a 130-acre open flea market and RV park. Arcadia is easy to access, just 2 miles south of Interstate 20 in northwest Louisiana.
