Culture and Traveler's Guide

Steeped with southern tradition coupled with modern progressiveness, Caddo and Bossier Parishes offer a variety of attractions, festivals, nationally-acclaimed sporting events, art galleries and museums. Linked together by the nation's largest neon-lit bridge, Shreveport and Bossier City offer abundant shopping, accommodations and fabulous specialty foods such as Tex-Mex, Cajun, French, Italian, and Oriental. If fast-paced activity is your style, race forward to Louisiana Downs, the area's premier thoroughbred racetrack, or "Roll on the Red River" with three dockside riverboat casinos. For family fun, a trip to Water Town U.S.A. is a must. Or enjoy a leisurely stroll through the Gardens of the American Rose Center and the Barnwell Garden and Art Center. An unmatched joy for life and fun is celebrated with year-round festivals commemorating Mardi Gras, Spring, roses, art, chili cooking, crawfish, Black heritage, July 4th, hot air ballooning, horseracing and Christmas. Sports enthusiasts will find just what they are looking for in Shreveport-Bossier, home of Texas League AA baseball and the Western Professional Hockey League Mudbugs. Nationally-acclaimed sporting events include the PGA Nike Golf Tournament, Champion Lake Pro Classic Waterskiing and the NCAA Independence Bowl football game.

A true sportsman's paradise, the community is surrounded by tranquil lakes. With over 3,000 acres of landscaped parks, the area is brimming with jogging paths and nature trails. Caddo and Bossier Parishes are culture-filled with a metropolitan ballet company, opera, symphony, art galleries, theater and museums. Our diverse museums cover everything from oil and Indian relics to farm equipment, vintage aircraft and automobiles to historical memorabilia, hands-on science to sports champions. Because there's year-round entertainment, just pick a month to visit and we'll supply the fun. Shreveport-Bossier: a winning combination.
