Benton is the parish seat of Bossier Parish. Located in northwest Louisiana just 15 miles away from Shreveport, Benton may be a small town, but it has plenty of amenities and activities that attract people looking for homes for rent in a quaint yet multifaceted town. As a town in the Ark-La-Tex region, Benton serves its residents and those from surrounding communities with high-quality facilities and a slew of shopping opportunities.
Avid golfers will no doubt love to settle in Benton, as one of the town's biggest attractions is the Palmetto Country Club. Designed by a PGA Tour professional, the pristine 18-hole course is one of the most respected golfing facilities in northwest Louisiana. The country club also features a luxe bar and grill called The 19th Hole, a high-quality dining room and a swim club with plenty of aquatic activities for both children and adults. The town's close proximity to the Cypress Bayou Reservoir also provides renters with a chance to appreciate nature at the reservoir's park and recreation area. There, visitors can fish, swim, kayak or rent a cabin for a night.
