So what is it about Shreveport-Bossier: Louisiana’s Other Side that sets it apart? It’s that unique combination of two great American heritages. It’s a little Texas, a little Cajun. You’ll find the combination reflected in our mouth-watering dining, where flavorful Texas steak may be combined with spicy crawfish. Or you might find it in our music, with nightclubs and concerts for jazz, country, bluegrass, folk, zydeco, and everything in between. There’s no place like it in America, a world of color and sound, taste and entertainment, elegant Southern charm and a relaxed attitude that suggest you kick off your boots and stay a while.

Festivals are our trademark, and we hold them from the time the first warm breeze dances across our faces to the time cool air convinces us it’s time to go indoors-but not before indulging in fabulous shopping at the Louisiana Boardwalk. Our artistic legacy runs deep. We have live theater and symphony performances, and on any given weekend you’re likely to find concerts by today’s popular artists as well as those by yesterday’s favorites to take you on a whimsical trip down memory lane. Our museums showcase our rich history, including our place in musical lore as the place where Elvis Presley got his start on the Louisiana Hayride.

Our riverboat casinos are floating palaces, tributes to the frontier tradition of 24-hour fun and excitement. Along with traditional gaming, our casinos host fabulous entertainment and an assortment of restaurants and buffets. And don’t be surprised to find a famous star or two at your gaming table or favorite club. Here in “Hollywood South”, the possibilities are endless.
