Just across the Louisiana State Line on I-20, Shreveport and Bossier City, which are divided by the Red River, offer tons of fun for adults and families alike! Check out some of our favorite places to play, eat and stay! As always, let me know if you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer!

The bridge over the Red River, which separates Shreveport and Bossier City, Louisianna.


Shreveport Water Works Museum A neat and FREE (donations appreciated) museum about the steam-powered municiple water treatment plant. Great for anyone who enjoys engineering or history.

Shreveport Aquarium Sharks, alligators and much more await you at this unique aquarium.

Sci-Port Discovery Center A fun Children’s Museum and enough hands-on exhibits for adults to enjoy, too!

Spirit of the Red River Cruise Currently closed due to Covid, but a great tour of the river.

Mardi Gras 2022 Let the Good Times Roll from mid-January to Fat Tuesday on March 1st with a parade almost every weekend, tons of family fun, and great food! Be sure to stop by Lilah’s Bakery or Tubb’s Hardware (trust me) for a King Cake! Tubb’s also has tons of fun mask, beads and more!

Outdoor World in Bossier City sits on the Red River, next door to Margaritaville Hotel and Casino.


Fertitta’s Delicatessen Unique sandwich shop for decades! The Muffy, a muffuletta with their signature olive mix. Stop by the Padre for their delicious meats, too! Best of all, it’s conveniently located off I-20 before you get to the river (from Texas) and makes a great stop on road trips, too, although they are only open for lunch.

Margaritaville Hotel and Casino in Bossier City, LA


Margaritaville, Bossier City Our casino and hotel of choice, it has a great view of the river, and access to the nearby Bass Pro Shop, restaurants and shops. We’re not big gamblers, but I did win about $300 here once, so they do get my loyalty. They also have some great concerts, so check to see who is coming soon.

Horseshoe Casino Still a nice casino and hotel, the DARE 21 and over swimming pool offer fun Summer nightlife. Like Margaritaville, they also have some fun concerts and shows.

Red River Chalet I haven’t stayed at this AirBNB yet, but it’s on my Bucket List for our next visit, because it looks cool, allows dogs and the price is right!
