Description

If a Texan and a Cajun procreated, their spawn would be called Shreveport, Louisiana. It's a magical land where good food, southern hospitality and Cajun spirit mix together to make a delightful concoction. Shreveport's history as an oil capital is quickly evidenced by the rows of mansions built during the 1920s 30s. Its athletic side can be found in the trails, golf courses, frisbee golf course, and lake watersports. Or perhaps you can take a trip to the neon lights of Texas Street Bridge to take part in Louisiana horseracing. For the slightly more poised crowd, Shreveport offers its sophisticated side with botanical gardens, shopping centers, and waterfront dining. And Shreveport's spunk is immediately evidenced by the casinos, as well as the festivals dedicated to everything from music to wine to beer to crawfish.
