One thing is for certain, you won’t have to stress about expenses in Shreveport. While it’s the 3rd biggest city in Louisiana (with a population just under 200,000), the cost of housing is surprisingly low, allowing you to enjoy a moderately-sized city without breaking your bank every month. The median cost of a home in Shreveport is $102,100, well below the national median cost of $216,200. This will allow you to think bigger when house shopping. Are you more of a renter than a buyer? No worries there, either. The average cost of a 1 bedroom apartment in Shreveport is just $716 compared to the average U.S. cost of $930. You’ll also enjoy no traffic most days (except for big events). 

You’ll Never Be Bored

Shreveport is loaded with so many hotspots and things to do that it’s hard to know where to start. First off, it’s mostly known for its riverboat gaming. The riverboat casinos that run along the Red River are top notch. Want to gamble but not a fan of boats? There’s always Sam’s Hotel and Eldorado Resort Casino. Live it up with all the blackjack, craps, roulette, baccarat and poker you can handle, as well as the live music and spas.

If you’re a fan of art, you’re in luck. Shreveport has more than its share of galleries and museums. At the top of the list is famous Agora Borealis, a famous art gallery with paintings, pottery, sculptures and more with furniture and jewelry. The Agora Borealis also regularly hosts events and art openings. Then there’s the Spring Street Historical Museum and R.W. Norton Art Gallery that displays paintings, sculpture and rare books.

Or how about the Shreveport Aquarium, home to more than 3,000 animals. Still relatively new (it opened in 2017), it’s located on the city’s downtown riverfront and gives visitors immersive experiences, inviting families to walk through a specialized dome gallery where you can see some of 270 species swim right above your head. It also has replica shipwrecks, dark ocean caves and numerous touch tanks.

And don’t forget, Shreveport is only three hours away from Dallas and five hours away from New Orleans. Day trips and weekend getaways await any time you feel like it.
